Around 600 exhibitors, including collectors, antique store managers, gallery and arts and crafts store owners, organ grinders, hunters and chefs, will gather for the fifth Tumski Fair in P這ck May 24-26.

One of Poland’s biggest events for collectors, the Tumski Fair is modeled on traditional weekend fairs held across Europe and provides entire families with a great excuse to take a road trip to P這ck, 120 kilometers northwest of Warsaw. This year, the organizers have prepared a host of attractions, from exhibitions and concerts to tastings and dance shows.

Aside from this year’s leading theme of “Tasty Tradition,” each of the fair’s three days will have a special theme of its own: hunting, Spain and collecting. On Friday, May 24, visitors will learn about the culture, tradition and cuisine of Spain. The day will feature flamenco music, traditional Spanish dishes for tasting, folk outfit fashion shows and demonstrations of Spanish folk customs, culminating in a high-energy Spanish Dance Night.

On the Saturday, the fair will celebrate hunting traditions with a hunting dog show, game dishes and falconers demonstrating their trade.

Collectors will have their moment in the sun all Sunday during a unique exhibition of rare and impressive collections of shaving utensils, buttons, tooth fillings, bottle caps, thimbles, cheese spread stickers, candy wrappers and many more unlikely collector’s items.

Like any other such gathering, the Tumski Fair is also about buying things and, accordingly, the fair grounds will be packed full of stalls with antiques, trinkets and handicrafts put up for sale by collectors from Poland, Lithuania, Germany and Britain. Visitors to the event will also be treated to delights prepared by the some of Poland’s best chefs who took part in a competition called the UniFreeze Culinary Cup.

Since the Tumski Fair is a family event, adults can get busy hunting down rare items while their kids will be entertained at a barrel organ festival, a firefighter band concert and a Spanish dance show. All will be treated to a lot of interesting facts about Polish culture, traditions and history.

The fifth Tumski Fair is organized by the Friends of the Museum of Mazovia in P這ck Association and the P這ck Culture and Art Center.
