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
Planning for Polkamotion 2014 Is Well Underway!
Plans are almost complete for our 35th Annual Polkamotion by the Ocean! Help us celebrate our eleventh year at Rehoboth Beach, DE so mark your calendars for September 11 - 14, 2014! Once again we've assembled some of the nation's top polka bands to bring you four days of word-class polka music for your listening and dancing enjoyment. If the sounds of Lenny Gomulka & Chicago Push, Polka Family, the Eddie Forman Orchestra, The Beat, The Boys, Polka Country Musicians, The Knewz, Dennis Polisky & The Maestro's Men, The Nu Tones and more don't excite you, we don't know what will! As always, to keep you energized and refreshed we'll have plenty of home-made Polish/American food prepared under the auspices of Chef Gil Ziemski and all your favorite libations liberally poured by our professional bartenders. You won't find more reasonably-priced food and beverages at any polka fest anywhere. Early birds are welcome to play in our annual Polkamotion Open Best Ball Golf Tournament, a fun event for all skill levels (or newbies!), on Wednesday, September 10 at the Old Landing Golf Course. Then, stop by the Convention Center that night at 7 pm for a "Meet & Greet Party" featuring live polka music by Crabtown Sound. Guest musicians are invited to jam. Don't miss the Polka Mass on Sunday followed by an afternoon of polka/variety music by The Variety Tones. Visit www.polkamotion.com or www.rbpolka.com as more exciting details are announced.
