Are there any Polish people in Florida?

I just moved down from Chicago for school, I've yet to see 1 Polish person here, I'm kinda hoping to find some single Polish females down here, gotta represent.

Anyway I'm 21, fluent in Polish and English, born in Chicago but my entire family is Polish, and I've been all over Poland and Europe. I'm in school right now focusing on getting my bachelor's degree so I can get a job in Hollywood.

If there's anyone from the Central Florida / Orlando area, hit me up sometime.

There are many Poles in Florida. There is a Polish American Club in Hollywood, There is a Polish Deli in Margate, Titusville has an annual Polish Fest. There is a Polish Church in Pompano, Our Ladyof Czetochowa (?)

There is a polish restaurant in Boca Raton called Kameleon on Fed. Hwy and Palmetto. There is a polish bar named PRL ,in Hollywood on the main drag that is very cool. Hope that helps.

You just have to keep your eyes open. Normally, I would check out any store that sells European goods (e.g. food, drinks, etc.). You might encounter some Polish people there. Here in Tampa there is a store called Taste of Europe. It's a Polish store.

If you are in college, see if your school has any organizations catering to international students. There is a likelihood that you might encounter some Polish people in those organizations.

There are more then you think. I live by the airport in Orlando. There is a Polish Deli on Aloma. There great. It like the Deli's when I was growing up. I was born in Hamtramck ( Michigan ) Kowalski or Dutack were the one that were open to me. My kids love polish food and a try to make them as much as I can. The Polish people are all around. Which I am happy for. I do wish there were some Polish Bakery's in Orlando.

Hi there knptak,

Do you know if there is a Polish organization in the Orlando area? I'm involved in putting on a Polka Fest and am looking for some advice. I'm originally from Central Wisconsin where such activities are commonplace.

Thanks!

My wife is from Poland and we found there to be a fairly large Polish population in the Sarasota area.

We always stop by w w w.polishdelipierogi.com several times when we are there on vacation.

You would be surprised at the number of Polish people in Florida.. But they are not consetrated in any one area as up north..We are all scattered.. Florida is a big state.

Every year there is a Octoberfest in Cape Coral..It is very well represented by Poles. It goes on for two week ends. People come in buses from all over south west Florida.. There are Polish bands as well as German..We all dance to the same music

Check out floryda.com

I just moved to SW Florida from Michigan and have not met Polish speaking people yet but I know that they live here as well. There is a small Polish store in Naples that I haven't had a chance to visit yet. Looks like majority of Poles are on the South East Coast. Next month I will visit the club and the store in Pompano Beach and then I want to check out that Octoberfest in Cape Coral.

We are a fun loving Polish-American couple, and we've just moved to the Boca Raton, FL area. Looking for other polish-english speaking couples we could hang out with.

I just found this site and would like to invite you to a Polish Night I am running at our Local Elks Club. Cocoa Florida Saturday November 15th.It is $20.00 per person and I am making all the food. Pierogi, kapusta, mushroom soup and we will have kielbasa, although I hope I don't get stuck with Hillshire Farm. I am working on hiring a Polish band if anyone knows of one let me know.

I just moved here 19 months ago and we have met some really nice people. I would love to meet some more Polish. There is a Polish Deli on Rt. 50 near Orlando pricey but really authentic.

BOY! Are you misinformed. Cubans yes, in Miami. Dominicans yes , but no where as near as up north.
The rest of Florida is inhabited by retired northern workers. They worked hard. Saved their money, and now lead the good life. There are a lot of young people moving in..( RED NECKS) Bull schidt! I have been here for 35yrs and have not seen but a few. At least we can walk the streets after dark in safety.
