Thanksgiving Polka Party Weekend

Twenty Cleveland-Style and Slovenian-Style orchestras and entertainers are scheduled each day to delight you in three Marriott Hotel locations. For the 30th anniversary of the Awards Show, many Polka Hall of Famers will be in town to perform, including Nashville’s Joey Miskulin, Walter Ostanek, Hank Thunander, Fred Ziwich, the Tady Brothers, Jeff Pecon and Kathy Hlad. Enjoy music by Barefoot Becky, Fritz’s Polka Band, the Singing Slovenes, Linda Lee Brown, Aaron Dussing’s Polka Revolution, Anthony Culkar, Bill Bevec, Don Wojtila, Rob DeBlander, and the Button Box Divas.

The Friday evening button box jam brings together as many as fifty accordions on the main stage. Polka personality Tony Petkovsek, who started the festival, gives the downbeat for the 54th time. Bring your box or instrument and join one of the many jam sessions that pop up in the side rooms and lobbies.

Take advantage of the Thanksgiving Weekend special – tickets to all four events for only $60 per person. Free indoor parking included, attached and heated, with each ticket. Food and beverages are available in the foyer. Get your advance tickets through the Polka Hal of Fame.

Kollander Travel offers a special Marriott Hotel deal for each deluxe room, only $105 per night, including health club, pool and sauna. Jack Casino is just across Public Square with shopping and restaurants nearby on East 4th and West 6th Streets. The Polka Hall of Fame and Museum is fifteen minutes east of downtown with the largest selection of polka-themed CDs, tee-shirts and gifts.
