**Breaking News U.S.P.A Cancelled:
To our Polka family and friends, with a heavy heart and deep regret, the U.S.P.A. announces the cancellation of our 52nd Annual Festival and Convention scheduled to be held on May 21 through May 24, 2020, at the Holiday Inn South, Independence, Ohio. This mutual decision was not made lightly by the U.S.P.A. and the Holiday Inn South. Concern for the health and safety of all those attending was the deciding factor. We thank you for your understanding and support during this unprecedented time in our lives. We look forward to celebrating with all of you when the threat of the COVID-19 virus is diminished and we can once again , safely and comfortably, meet and celebrate our love of polka music. In the meantime, stay safe, stay healthy and God Bless all those who have sacrificed so much for us.
To those who currently have reservations, no action is needed on your part. We are pleased to announce that the Holiday Inn and the Springhill Suites will be handling it for you.
Please watch for future announcements regarding the U.S.P.A. Polka Extravaganza and a Mini-Festival to be held November 6 and 7, 2020 at the Holiday Inn South.
