For Poznań, November 11th is not only Polish Independence Day, but also St. Martin's Day - a holiday that has been celebrated here since the Medieval times. The festival in its current form has been around since 1994, and takes the form of "St. Martin Street Name Day", taking place on ul. Św. Marcin and involving a colourful parade, pleasant kitsch, and literal tonnes of special pimped-out croissants. The start of the precession is from 13:00 in front of St. Martin's Church. There will be a handover of the keys of St. Martin at 13:40. Street performances will start at 14:00 and include clarinets, Lech Dyblik, and Republika Rytmu. From 14:00-20:00 activities will take place in the courtyards and gates and will finish with a fireworks show at 21:00.
