Monday, April 21, 2014: Dyngus Day Cleveland celebration, W. 58th and Detroit Avenue: The Dyngus Day Parade returns to W. 58th and Detroit after a march through the neighborhood. Dyngus Day has been celebrated for thousands of years on Easter Monday in Poland and other Easter European cultures. It marks the conclusion of Easter, and the often-restrictive time of Lent, with Polish music, beer, and cuisine. The world’s largest organized Dyngus Day celebration is in Buffalo, NY, where DJ Kishka performed in 2010 and was inspired to bring the event back to his hometown of Cleveland. “I wanted to celebrate the rich heritage of the Polish and Eastern European Cultures here in Cleveland,” Kishka says, “Bringing the party to Detroit Shoreway along with adding Ohio City and Tremont this year, were a perfect fit to grow Dyngus Day.” This year marks the fourth year of celebrating Dyngus Day in the Detroit Shoreway neighborhood in Cleveland.
