Srodek’s Pierogi Challenge

Love to eat and drink?

We’ll feed you and quench your thirst!

Many of you may still remember your mother’s or grandmother’s kitchen filled with the aroma of Polish cooking. At the festival, we offer many of the old familiar dishes that we all love. These dishes are hand-selected, and represent the finest Polish foods available in the metro Detroit area.

Last year we served up tons of hot, Polish kielbasa with all the trimmings, 20,000 pierogies, authentic potato pancakes and hundreds of pounds of kapusta. This even included the introduction of the “Polish Slider” and the “Polish Nacho”.

Visitors can also enjoy other favorites such as Polish coffee cakes, paczki, chrusciki or angel wings, hot dogs, pizza, subs, Philly steaks, tacos, shish kabob, gyros, barbeque chicken, corn on the cob, popcorn and kettle corn, and funnel cakes.
To help wash down all that food, we also have lots of Polish and American beer, soft drinks, and bottled water.

At the largest Polish Festival in Macomb County, Michigan, the 1st Annual Pierogi-Eating Contest was held on Saturday, July 9, 2011, at the American-Polish Century Club grounds in Sterling Heights, Michigan.

In a violent display of mass consumption, Matt Holowicki of Plymouth, Michigan not only beat the competition with 49 pierogis eaten in the ten-minute span, but also broke the national record of 42 pierogis held in California that year.

The winner, Matt Holowicki thanked all of his supporters, and as an automatic entrant into next year’s contest vowed to return. He was later seen in the dessert line for nalesniki.
