Our Story

About the PAF

The Polish Arts Festival (PAF) has been celebrating 12 years in Limerick.

We are very proud to have been selected as one of the Made in Limerick Projects by the Limerick City of Culture 2014. PAF has also been invited to work on Limerick 2020 European City of Culture.

In 2016 PAF artistic director, Justyna Cwojdzińska, received an “Outstanding Pole Award” in Culture category for the work on the Festival from the Polish Government, Polish Promotional Emblem Foundation TERAZ POLSKA under the honorary patronage of the President of the Republic of Poland (see www.terazpolska.pl).

PAF has hosted over 120 Polish & Irish artists in the last 12 years and will feature outstanding acts in 2018.
