Great news!  Despite the fact that construction will prevent the annual Polkamotion by the Ocean festival from taking place at the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center next September, arrangements have been made to conduct polka dances at the nearby W. T. Spooner American Legion Post 17 Pavilion, 113 American Legion Rd, Lewes, DE, for the enjoyment of polka fans who still plan to vacation at the ocean resort town.

Polkamotion 2016 Music Schedule:

Thursday, Sept. 15: Polka Family from 6 pm – 10 pm.

Friday, Sept. 16: Eddie Forman Orchestra from 6 pm – 10 pm with a special reunion performance by Charm City Sound.

Saturday, Sept. 17: Polka Country Musicians from 6 pm – 10 pm.

Adult admission for each dance is only $15 ($10 for youths 16 – 20; kids under 16 are free) and the full bar serves very reasonably priced drinks.  Food will not be available but complimentary snacks will be served.  The grounds provide ample space for a large crowd but seating is limited in the pavilion on a first come, first serve basis.  Advance tickets are recommended.  After each dance, polka DJ parties will be conducted at Zogg’s Raw Bar and Grill, 1 Wilmington Ave., Rehoboth Beach, DE, from 11 pm – 1 am.  And, the annual “best ball” Polkamotion Open Golf Tournament will be conducted as usual on Wednesday, September 14, 2016. 

Come on down to the beach and get your polka fix next September!  For more information visit and or call Mike Matousek at (202) 246-7918.  In 2017, Polkamotion will be back at the Rehoboth Convention Center.

Polkamotion by the Ocean is the nation's only four-day polka festival conducted in a wonderful ocean-front resort town.  It all began in 1980 when the festival was first conducted in Ocean City, MD's Convention Center.  After many years of success, the festival moved a little further north to the Convention Center in the charming town of Rehoboth Beach, DE in 2004.  This venue, which is located at 229 Rehoboth Ave., provides the perfect acoustics and accommodations for today's Polkamotion audience.  Plus, there are plenty of lodging options, gourmet restaurants, and tax-free shops all located within walking distance of the Convention Center.  The gorgeous beach and fun boardwalk are only three short blocks from the hall!  The convenience and amenities of Rehoboth Beach truly provide the complete vacation experience.  

        So.....if you've got the notion to play by the ocean, pack your lotion, and head down to Polkamotion!  It's the polka festival where you'll feel like family!
