Pierogi Fest

Pierogi Fest ® - A Celebration of the Stuffed Dumpling
July 28-30, 2023

The Pierogi Fest is a celebration of Whiting residents heritage while having a lot of fun at their own expense.

Besides the traditional pierogis there are other food vendors, and a parade you don’t want to miss!  The grandmothers in their housecoats, and the lawn mower brigade with men in their socks and sandals make it one of the wackiest festivals in the midwest.
