SHENAN­DOAH --- The 11th an­nual Shenan­doah Kiel­basi Fes­ti­val, spon­sored by the re­vi­tal­iza­tion group Down­town Shenan­doah Inc., will be held from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. May 19 on North Main Street.

It will again in­clude Shenan­doah’s so-called three Kiel­basi Kings --- the Capi­tol Food Mar­ket, East Wash­ing­ton Street; Kowalonek’s Kiel­basy Shop, South Main Street, and Lucky’s Kiel­basi Shop and Deli, West Cen­tre Street.

The fes­ti­val’s main at­trac­tion will be the home­made kiel­basa con­test fea­tur­ing pri­vate kiel­basi mak­ers us­ing recipes that of­ten have been handed down over gen­er­a­tions. The con­test will have fresh and smoked cat­e­gories with con­tes­tants com­pet­ing for the “cov­eted” Pig Tro­phy, ac­cord­ing to DSI.

Judges for the con­test will again in­clude com­mer­cial kiel­basi mak­ers Mark Kowalonek of Kowalonek’s Kiel­basy Shop, Mike Stanakis of the Capi­tol Food Store and Dave Lukashu­nas of Lucky’s Deli,

The wildly pop­u­lar fes­ti­val will also in­clude Ateeco Inc., Shenan­doah, maker of Mrs. T’s Piero­gies, plus Pol­ish pot­tery, Ma­trushka dolls, straw or­na­ments and var­i­ous eastern Euro­pean crafts.

There will also be live polka mu­sic by the All-Amer­i­can Polka Band, a wide va­ri­ety of eth­nic and Amer­i­can food plus games for chil­dren and nu­mer­ous ven­dors.

The Greater Shenan­doah Area His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety’s head­quar­ters and mu­seum at 201 S. Main St. and the Schuylkill His­tor­i­cal Fire So­ci­ety’s ac­claimed mu­seum at 105 S. Jardin St. tra­di­tion­ally are open dur­ing the fes­ti­val and at­tract nu­mer­ous vis­i­tors.

DSI’s Bob Kane said vol­un­teers are needed to help with the fes­ti­val, es­pe­cially with set­ting up and tak­ing down be­fore and af­ter the event.
