The National Cleveland-Style Polka Hall of Fame

Glad you stopped by!


The National Cleveland-Style Polka Hall of Fame is home to many nationally known Cleveland-Style polka stars throughout history. Some of the biggest and best talents are found right here within our walls. Please explore this site and learn all about the Cleveland-Style polka sound and some of the musicians who have contributed throughout the years.


The National Cleveland-Style Polka Hall of Fame was founded in 1987 by musicians and leaders of Slovenian and ethnic organizations. The museum traces the story of the city's home-grown sound from its roots in the old Slovenian neighborhoods to nationwide popularity with audio exhibits, historic photographs and original instruments. The archive preserves 6,000 vintage recordings, dating back to 1913.
