American Originals at the Lagrange Street Polish Festival

The weekend of July 11, 12, and 13 is the Lagrange Street Polish Festival in Toledo, Ohio. It is an event which is celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year, and has been growing every year.

This year we will have a presence with our newest publication, American Originals: Northwest Ohio's Polish Community at Home, Work, Worship, and Play, at the largest festival in Toledo.

We will be located near the Toledo Polish Genealogical Society by St. Hedwig's church. See the map of the festival below to get a better idea of approximately where we will be located. (The Polish Genealogical Society is number 5.)

Come Meet Our Staff

The staff of the University of Toledo Press will be present as well. Barbara Floyd, the Director of the Press, will be there both days. Her assistant (Patrick Cook) and graduate assistant (Jasmine Townsend) will be there on Saturday and Sunday respectively. The nearby Polish Genealogy booth will also periodically have some of the American Originals authors present, meaning there could be opportunities to purchase a copy of the book and get it signed by a relevant author.
