Although one of the main attractions is pierogi, there are many other things to do at Pierogi Fest. It is set up on 119th Street in downtown Whiting. The street is only open to foot traffic during the festival. There are food booths set up along the streets serving pierogi, kielbasa, and sauerkraut.
