Events and Festivals in Warsaw During Holiday

The largest cities in Poland organise plenty of big outdoor events that attract crowds of tourists from all over the country every year. Especially a lot happens during the holiday season. It is not only about holiday tours, but there are also all kinds of fairs, exhibitions, auctions or races. Events and festivals in Warsaw are often the only reason why tourists go to the capital. Sometimes these are events taking place at night or a few days festivals. In this case, we invite you to spend the night in our hotel.

Holiday in Warsaw – holiday in city can be fun?

Those who live and work in a big city, will gladly spend part of the holiday away from the city crowds and noise. Unfortunately, this is not always possible, but it does not mean that holiday in the city can’t be fun. On the contrary – it is an ideal time to visit the attractive corners of the capital and monuments, which are typical places where many trips come during the school period. In the Warsaw area, there are many bathing areas, where you can go on a weekend or spend a nice afternoon in the middle of the week. Pools and dedicated swimming areas are an ideal proposition for hot summer days. You can cycle to nearby beaches. There are many interesting cycling routes in Warsaw, we encourage you to test at least a few of them. Another interesting idea for the residents of Warsaw are city games and field games. The outdoor games in the Łazienki Royal Park are particularly interesting while playing them participants solve various puzzles and discover the secrets of the Park. These types of games are often combined with family picnics. Family picnics can be treated as special events and festivals  in Warsaw, because most of them are organized every year and for the same reason, for example: to celebrate the start or the end of holiday. Family picnics attract people of all ages, from small children to senior citizens.

Events and festivals in Warsaw – music

A great attraction for both residents of Warsaw and people just visiting the capital are big music events that are advertised  in the media. Well-known and popular national artists, and often also stars from abroad take part in them. In August and September there will be a lot of these events – it’s certain that fans of every music genre will find something for themselves. The place which hosts plenty of  musical events is PGE Narodowy. This August  on the 11th and 12th August Ed Sheeran will appear there. Initially, it was planned that he would sing only on August 11 and it will be his only concert in Poland, but many fans had a problem with getting tickets. The vocalist’s performance will be one of the most important music events of the year. At this point, it’s worth mentioning one more big music event that will surely gather a huge audience. Dancing PGE Narodowy is a concert of dance and disco music, which, as the name suggests, takes place each year at the PGE Narodowy. This evens host the most popular artists whose music simply makes you dance. This year’s edition of the event falls on September 29.

Events you can’t miss – not only music

During the holiday season in Warsaw there are also other types of events, part of them charity events. These include street runs, shows and horse races, motor shows and much more. Most take place periodically – each year, more or less at the same time. One of the most interesting events is the largest fitness and wellness fair in this part of Europe, which takes place at the EXPO XXI Exhibition Center. This year, over 200 exhibitors from Poland and abroad will visit Warsaw on September 21-23. This year also marks the important fortieth edition of the Great Run. The Warsaw Marathon celebrates its start on September 30th and that day all those who don’t accept the  words “I cannot” will run and actively support one of ten charitable organizations. These are, of course, only examples of spectacular events taking place in Warsaw in August-September.
