Update: The organizers of Dyngus Day Cleveland, a Polish celebration that takes place each year here on the day after Easter, have announced that this year's event has been postponed due to coronavirus concerns.

"As health officials share more information regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Board of Directors for Dyngus Day Cleveland understands the importance of keeping our community informed and safe," reads a press release announcing the postponement. "We realize the situation is evolving rapidly and appreciate your flexibility as we navigate. The well-being of our community and partners is our highest priority, and we have been in constant communication with the City of Cleveland and health officials."

Organizers hope to reschedule the event at a later date in 2020.

Original Post 3/2/2020: Monday, April 13, will mark the 10th anniversary of Dyngus Day Cleveland, and organizers expect 60,000 people to attend this year’s event.

Per usual, Dyngus Day Cleveland will feature parades, Polish dancing, pageants, paczki and piwo.

The celebration will take place at 10:30 a.m. in Gordon Square, and organizers have just announced the day's schedule of events.

DJ Kishka will serve as the host of the daylong celebration, and Sibling Revelry Brewing will brew up a special Dyngus Day Piwo, a custom beer created exclusively for the festivities. There will be local artisans with curated merchandise, and one lucky woman will be crowned the Polish Queen in the Miss Dyngus Day Pageant.

There will be free rides on Lolly the Trolley throughout town, and new features this year include an Amateur Accordion Contest judged by a panel of polka professionals and a Polish Wedding.
