Pierogi Fest is a Polish feast
One underrated and undeniably delicious dumpling will get its day this month when Seattle’s annual Pierogi Fest takes place on Saturday, May 16. Skip breakfast to prepare for $10 plates of the Polish dumplings stuffed with sauerkraut and mushroom, meat, potato and cheese — even blueberries. $10 earns you a dozen, with kid-sized half-orders served for half-price. Drinks, pastries and Polish culture workshops and performances add up to one fun, filling neighborhood event. Festivities run from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Polish Home Association, 1714 18th Ave., near the Capitol Hill Trader Joe’s.
If you can’t make it to this year’s festival, enjoy pierogi at a handful of restaurants across Seattle, including Vostok Dumpling House on Capitol Hill (1416 Harvard Ave.), Piroshki on 3rd downtown (710 3rd Ave.) and Pel’Meni Dumpling Tzar in Fremont (3516 Fremont Pl N).
