Polka is coming back to Door County

Some classic polka history will be returning to Northern Door County in the upcoming months. Dale Graf, known as Polkaman Dale, will be performing Door County’s pastime alongside the Jolly Gents throughout the upcoming summer months. The reason for the concerts are to help bring back some of the rich histories from Door County in the early 1900s. According to Graf, polka music was the most popular music genre during the early 1900s, and that people bought accordions just so they could play. He states farmers would go into town on the weekends to listen to polka at the nearest bar. Graf says there is something about polka that simply makes people happy.


The concerts will be held at the Kress Pavillion in Egg Harbor. The first concert of the series will be June 26 at 7 p.m. The concerts will be free to the public.
