The 2019 Northeast Ohio Pierogi Fest joins the multitude of Cleveland-area Polish-centered festivities at the Canton Cultural Center for the Arts this Sunday.

Although Cleveland's Polish population has decreased since immigrants came searching for work in the early 1900s, bringing copious pierogi recipes with them, current-day Clevelanders have kept a taste for the beloved filled pockets.

From 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Canton festival-goers can expect to eat these goodies from a variety of eateries throughout Northeast Ohio, including Pierogi Palace, The Pierogi Lady and Pierogi Joe's Food Truck.

Attendees can also stop by the concurrent bazaar, which hosts more than 50 vendors, see authentic Polish dancers and, of course, listen to polka music performed by NorthCoast Mix.

The day is topped off with a judged competition between the food vendors, who are competing for the prized Golden Pierogi Award.

Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door. Find them here.
