All ages welcome
TIme TBDFreeAll ages welcome
Taking its name from the symbol on the Polish national flag, the White Eagle saloon was established in 1905 by Polish immigrants primarily as a formal meeting place and aid station for Polish immigrants in Portland. Organizational meetings for two of the pillars of Portland’s Polish community –- St. Stanislaus Catholic Church and Polish Library –- were held in the White Eagle in its early days.
To celebrate its rich and historically significant past, the White Eagle hosts a full-day of Polish and Polish-inspired fare, featuring members of Portland’s Polish community, a lively history presentation, live music, sing-alongs and traditional food and drink specials. Join us to enjoy: Polish games & crafts, and a Passport Discovery Hunt.

The Polish Cultural Enrichment Program, otherwise known as the Polish Saturday School, was established 22 years ago at the St, Stanislaus Parish in the North Portland Interstate neighborhood. The program’s goal was - and continues to be - to preserve the Polish language and culture in families of Polish heritage living outside of Poland.We are proud to now have 40 children, ages 3-17, enrolled in our school to learn the language and culture of their forefathers. Our students practice the Polish language, learn about the history and geography of Poland, learn folk dances and songs, and create art. They also make everlasting friendships. We meet every other Saturday
