The Christmas Eve Table Festival will be held at the old Koneser vodka factory at 27/31 Z±bkowska St. in Warsaw's Praga district Nov. 27-29. The festival aims to promote and cultivate the Christmas traditions of the different regions of the country. The organizers have given exhibitors the chance to show just how original regional Christmas Eve dishes can be. Varsovians have an opportunity to sample genuine old-style Polish cuisine from the various parts of the country.

A Christmas Bazaar will also be held in Warsaw's Old Town neighborhood from Nov. 27 to Dec. 23. The event will revolve around old-style traditional Polish cooking and celebrating Christmas. Christmas cakes, cold cuts, cheeses and regional breads will be on offer. There will also be candy, a special buckwheat-potato-cheese pie from the eastern town of Biłgoraj, known as pieróg (or piróg) biłgorajski, cheeses from the northeastern town of Korycin, and highlander cheeses. Handmade goods, a selection of jewelry, and amber, ceramics and glass objects will be among traditional presents for sale. On top of all that, there will be homemade lamps, Christmas tablecloths, wicker products, highlander clothing, Christmas accessories and stoneware vessels. For children there will be a merry-go-round with a live nativity scene and Santa Claus will even be putting in an appearance. You can watch sculptors, woodworkers, blacksmiths and candle makers strutting their stuff. And you can buy regional and local cooking and hot snacks and wash them down with hot beer and warm wine sold from great barrels to stop yourself from freezing over.
