Are you planning an event to mark the 20th anniversary of Poland's accession to the European Union? A picnic, a debate, a concert, a training course, an exhibition? Add them to the map of events and celebrate with us.

20 years ago Poland joined the European Union. This is one of the most important events in the recent history of the country. The Ministry of Development Funds and Regional Policy wants to celebrate the 20 years of Poland's membership in the EU together with you. During the celebrations we want to show together the changes that have taken place in social and economic life, how many interesting projects have been carried out in Poland over the last two decades.

On the occasion of this anniversary, many attractions will take place all over Poland. Meetings, festivals, exhibitions, competitions, sport games, workshops, school plays, conferences, European May Days and open days at projects implemented thanks to the Poland's presence in the EU. An important element of the 20th anniversary celebrations is the European Funds Open Days (EFOD), which will take place on 10th and 11th May 2024.

EFOD is an annual celebration of European Funds organised in all regions of Poland. It allows people to learn more about the variety of projects implemented with the help of EU funds. This year, the event has a special dimension as it will be part of the government's campaign dedicated to celebrating the 20th anniversary of Poland's presence in the EU.

Let's create a common map of attractions

The map of attractions will be available at and will include DOFE events as well as all other events related to the 20th anniversary of Poland's membership in the EU.

Who can organise and submit an event?
