When: Mon., April 17 2017
For the past several years, Easter Monday in Cleveland has come to mean Dyngus Day, a Polish celebration also known as lany poniedziałek. The festivities begin today at 10 a.m. and continue until 2 a.m. in Ohio City, Hingetown and Tremont. At 4:30 p.m. at Kishka's Beer Heaven Tent at West 58th St. and Detroit, a Miss Dyngus pageant will take place. An accordion parade follows at 6 p.m. This year, Tremont will offer even more ethnic food specials to celebrate the event. Prosperity Social Club will offer up a special menu that includes cabbage rolls, ethnic platters and kielbaski corn dogs. Other Dyngus Day specials include sauteed pierogi from Sokolowski’s University Inn and Bigos (a Polish hunter’s stew) at Tremont Tap House. The easy listening trio Malphonia and legendary accordionist Stan Mejac will perform at Prosperity, the five-piece polka ensemble Visinata and DJ Kishka will perform at South Side and the Jimmy Daye 7 Ethnic Jazz Ensemble will perform at Sokolowski's. Also, this year, Tremont will offer its own free in-neighborhood shuttle. The Cleveland Brew Bus will run continuously between 1 and 8 p.m., stopping at Tremont Tap House, Prosperity Social Club, Roosevelt Veterans Post 58, the South Side and Sokolowski's University Inn.
