APRIL 9 – 11


As we are witnessing the spring taking over the city, we are getting hungry for outdoor food, concerts, exhibitions, and markets. Fortunately, our desires will be satisfied with this week’s events selection. We have prepared a comprehensive list of top events that will tick all the boxes on your perfect weekend checklist. Dig in to discover your plan for the next 3 days!

If you would like to receive our weekend guide by email every week, please enter your email address below. Delivery every Thursday.

1) Where to eat?

There are two culinary events that we want to recommend:

  • Grand Opening of PaTaThai – this will be the second PaTaThai restaurant in Warsaw. The franchise is a brainchild of one of the best Polish volleyball players in history – Łukasz Kadziewicz. His efforts have already been appreciated on Żoliborz where the first PaTaThai opened up. Now he sets out to conquer Mokotów. The first day in business will be marked by multiple occasions to win vouchers for dinners or Thai massage. Due to the pandemic restrictions, there will be only delivery and pick-up options. Bon Appetit and good luck, then!

when: from Friday, April 9, from 12:00

  • IV Ursynów Foodtruck Festival – if you just can’t wait for street food, the season will begin on Saturday. This event will inaugurate a series of similar festivals in other districts, so even those far from Ursynów can slowly buckle up for more. One recommendation for the weekend: try Banh Mi sandwiches from BajtMi.

when: Saturday and Sunday, April 10 and 11, from 12:00 to 20:00

2) What music to listen to?

This weekend holds out a wide array of performances that will explore a variety of music genres. The most noteworthy ones seem to all start at the same time, so choose wisely:

  • Silenceless Niche was a series of reportages that now culminates with a rescheduled concert showcasing bands fundamental to Warsaw music underground. If you are in for a mix of rock, metal, blues, and hip hop, you’ve just found your event.

when: Saturday, April 10, from 19:00

  • Jazzgot for Climate Change – Climate Change is an initiative by Bemowo Culture Center that showcases young local bands with their socially engaged and environmentally-savvy songs. This time the stage belongs to Jazzgot – a band inspired by Amy Winehouse’s and Gregory Porter’s music. They’ve played on numerous festivals and in top clubs in the city, so it might be a chance to see how the star is born.

when: Saturday, April 10, from 19:00

  • Lelum Polelum live – this young band is just about to make an official debut. They have earned their way into a live broadcast as a part of the Open Stage initiative of Wawer Culture Center. Lelum Polelum’s music is a blend of jazz, rock, funk, and soul. We support local bands, local music, and just can’t wait to hear the band’s first tracks.

when: Saturday, April 10, from 19:00

3) Where to learn and find a job?

The answer is simple – Warsaw IT Days. The event grants you access to over 200 VoD lectures and workshops with the leading IT specialists in the country and on the continent. The format is simple – each speaker has 30 minutes to educate you about a specific IT or data science topic. If you already are an IT specialist or aspire to be one, there will also be a job fair presenting positions in a number of national and international companies.

when: Thursday and Friday, April 8 and 9


4) Where to find art?

Again, we have a few suggestions:

  • BLOOMING – since art galleries and museums are closed, artists found a new way to exhibit their works. Florist shops are becoming their venues. The idea is that on a spring weekend walk you drop by a florist’s, marvel at the art, and adopt a plant. We call it a classic two-birds-with-one-stone kind of situation.

when: finishes on Sunday, April 11

where: various florist shops, full list in the FB event

  • Józef Wilkoń’s exhibition at Koneser Square – Józef Wilkoń is an internationally renowned painter, sculptor, and illustrator of books. His most iconic works will be exhibited in Centrum Praskie Koneser. It is always a source of inspiration to make a short stop there when on a walk around Praga.

when: until June 11

where: Centrum Praskie Koneser – plac Konesera

FB event

  • OFF Północna Festival – this festival brings the spotlight onto short singing and acting forms. This editions leitmotif is “Be yourself – despite all adversity.” “Uwaga, tu Obywatelka” has all the makings of a silent hit of the festival. The performance by Karolina Micuła (famous for her iconic topless picture from Strajk Kobiet) will feature politically engaged songs of Kora and Grzegorz Ciechowski. Check it out, even if you don’t speak Polish. The energy is there!

when: from Saturday, April 10, to Sunday, April 11

4) Where to find bargains?

Tighter restrictions don’t mean abstaining from finding great prices offline. If you are all about that temptingly low price-tags, you’d better check out:

  • Garage Sale on Ochota – exactly what you’d expect from an event called this way. Great way to let go of unnecessary items and equally attractive opportunity to score some rarities cheap as chips.

when: Sunday, April 11, from 10:00

where: Zieleniak – ul. Grójecka 97

FB event

  • Vinyl Records in Hala Gwardii – we will forever recommend events that allow us to find the white whales of music for less than 5 PLN. A must-attend for all vinyl heads.

when: Sunday, April 11, from 10:00 to 20:00

where: Hala Gwardii – Plac Żelaznej Bramy 1
