This family-friendly program is back by popular demand! Come see a polka band with attitude.

Performing polka favorites with new energy and excitement, this is a great concert for polka aficionados and non-polka-fans alike. The Chardon Polka Band plays traditional polkas, but sometimes morphs into modern renditions of the same songs. The band’s range of style is as eccentric as its members.
