Join us on Sunday, January 19, from 11 am to 6 pm, at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center in Dearborn for the 2020 Southeastern Michigan Polish Winter Celebration.

Two ticket options are available: VIP Preview and General Admission. VIP Preview allows you access to the event as early as 11 am, during a 2 hour window where only 300 guests will be in attendance. This is an ideal option for individuals who did not like large crowds and waiting in line. VIP Preview attendees are able to stay for the duration of the event even after the VIP Preview period ends at 1 pm. VIP Preview tickets can only be purchased in advance and will sell out fast. General Admission for the event starts at 1 pm and continues through the event’s conclusion at 6 pm. Although we currently offer general admission tickets in advance as well as at the door, we strongly recommend you purchasing your tickets in advance as events of this nature have a tendency to fill up and sell out quickly. If General Admission tickets do sell out in advance, this will be posted to both the event’s website as well as this Facebook page.

VIP Preview and Advance Discount General Admission tickets can be purchased at www.doyoulovepolishfood.com or by calling toll free (888) 504-8103 ext. 1.
