2014 Pierogi Eating Challange at the American Polish Festival


At the largest Polish Festival in Macomb County, Michigan, the 1st Annual Pierogi-Eating Contest was held on Saturday, July 9, 2011, at the American-Polish Century Club grounds in Sterling Heights, Michigan.


In a violent display of mass consumption, Matt Holowicki of Plymouth, Michigan not only beat the competition with 49 pierogis eaten in the ten-minute span, but also broke the national record of 42 pierogis held in California last year.


The winner, Matt Holowicki thanked all of his supporters, and as an automatic entrant into next year’s contest vowed to return. He was later seen in the dessert line fornalesniki.


Pierogi-eating contests are traditionally held at Polish festivals throughout the U.S..



American Polish Festival

The American-Polish Century Club is pleased to announce the American Polish Festival & Craft Show, July 11-13, 2014, on the grounds of The American Polish Century Club, 33204 Maple Lane, Sterling Heights, Mi 48312. The festival is located in Sterling Heights, MI. This is just a few miles from Hamtramck, Mi. Poles are the second largest ethnic group in Michigan and are a significant part of the history of Detroit. According to the 2000 U.S. Census, Michigan is home to the third largest Polish population after New York and Illinois. The current population of Michigan’s Polish Americans is concentrated in Macomb County. Sterling Heights has become one of the centers of Polonia in Michigan, since thier migration from Hamtramck. Our Festival draws thousands of friends and families from all around Michigan, Ohio, and Illinois. Our spirited festival features live music and dancing. Highlighting our Festival are the biggest names in Polka Music, along with finest Polish Dance Ensembles in Michigan. This is our second year for the Srodek’s Pierogi Eating Challenge. This competition is consuming the most Srodek’s Potato & Cheese Pierogi you can eat in ten minutes. Last years record of 63 pierogi in ten minutes comes close to setting the record. Try our delicious Polish Kitchen, the Polish Pub-n-Grub, and Beer Tent or visit anyone of the many vendors that take part in this event. There will be a Traditional Polish Mass on Sunday at 12:00 Noon. Stroll our Outdoor Craft Show featuring over 50 different crafters displaying their fine works. Admission to the festival is free to the public, although a $5.00 daily parking fee is required.
