Polkamotion 2016 Was Fun!  

Looking Ahead to 2018 in Rehoboth!

Thanks to all the folks who attended this year's version of Polkamotion by the Ocean at the W. T. Spooner American Legion Post 17 Pavilion, Lewes, DE.  Everyone had a great time and the American Legion staff did a fine job hosting our event.    

As far as the status of the construction project at the Rehoboth Beach City Hall/Convention Center, the City Manager is doubtful the work will be finished in time to make arrangements for Polkamotion next September.  Therefore, we're looking ahead to returning to the all-new convention center on September 12 - 16, 2018 for a fabulous polka festival!  Please mark the dates on your calendar!

More information will be posted on,, and our Facebook site in the future.  Feel free to contact me, Mike Matousek, at (202) 246-7918 with any questions.

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!
