This Week in Accordion: Blackpot Festival

After spending the weekend adding a bunch of new events, it’s time to check what’s happening on our accordion calendar this week:

  • Blackpot Festival and Cookoff (Fri-Sat in Lafayette, LA)
    A blackpot cookoff, an accordion contest, and nonstop Cajun/Zydeco music highlight this Acadiana festival. Lots of hot young bands on tap, including Pine Leaf Boys, Red Stick Ramblers, Lafayette Rhythm Devils, and more.
  • Wurstfest (Fri-next Sun in New Braunfels, TX)
    What could be better than a ten-day salute to sausage? This tribute to German culture (Texas style) features numerous German bands, as well as performances by Jimmy Sturr and Brave Combo.
  • Fall Polka Festival (Fri-Sun in Champion, PA)
    The Seven Springs Resort hosts eleven top polka bands in a weekend festival. Performers include Eddie Blazonczyk’s Versatones, Polka Family, Phocus, and more.

Have an accordion event to share? Let us know and we’ll add it to the calendar.

  1. The Blackpot Festival sounds like fun. We had a good time in Lafeyette, and enjoyed plenty of excellent food and music in the area.
