Great News! Polka Music Near Rehoboth in 2016!

Despite the fact that construction at the Rehoboth Beach City Hall/Convention Center will prevent Polkamotion by the Ocean from taking place in the convention hall this September, arrangements have been made to conduct polka dances at the nearby American Legion Post 17 Pavilion, 113 American Legion Rd, Lewes, DE. So, mark your calendars as follows:


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 (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. There is plenty of free parking and the pavilion 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 and can be ordered by mail via personal check or money order payable to "Mike Matousek," 8372 Williamstowne Drive, Millersville, MD.


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 at the Old Landing Golf Course, 20836 Old Landing Road, Rehoboth Beach, DE. We tee off and scramble at 10:00 AM so be there by 9:15 AM to check in. This fun event is for golfers (and "hackers") of all skill levels so come on out and have some fun with friends outdoors! Bring your coolers! .


For the convenience of those lodging in Rehoboth Beach and those who intend to avoid drinking and driving, we made arrangements with Jolly Trolley, Inc. to provide ground transportation from the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center parking lot on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights to the pavilion leaving at 5:15 pm. The return trip leaves the pavilion at 10:15 pm. You can reserve and pay for your seat via their web site at or by calling (302) 227-1197.


Call Mike Matousek at (202) 246-7918 for more information. To keep up with the details as they unfold, visit and In 2017, the construction will be complete so Polkamotion By The Ocean will be back at the Convention Center as usual.




Rehoboth Beach City Hall Construction Interrupts Polkamotion in 2016

Rehoboth Beach city officials recently informed Polkamotion by the Ocean promoters Mike Matousek and Mike Ziemski that a major construction project to renovate the Rehoboth Beach City Hall facility will make the Convention Hall unavailable for all events beginning in November of 2015 through early 2017. Please note that this 12 - 15 month project will prevent Polkamotion from being conducted in the hall only in 2016, interrupting the twelve consecutive years the festival has taken place in the facility. Since the construction project will be finished in early 2017, Polkamotion will resume its regular annual schedule in the hall beginning on September 13 - 17, 2017.

Please forward any feedback to, or the Polkamotion Rehoboth Facebook site.
