Celebrate 75 years of SNPJ Farm in Kirtland with a summer-long series of Sunday polka dances, dinners and special events. Dancers and music-lovers have enjoyed the finest in Cleveland Slovenian-style polkas and waltzes under the tall trees of SNPJ Farm ever since America’s Polka King, Frank Yankovic, played for the first picnic in 1939. Every Sunday, the SNPJ Farm features one of the best-known names in polka music, plus the finest in down-home dining.

This year, in addition to dances and dinners, you can check out a variety of summer Sunday events in honor of SNPJ Farm’s anniversary, from the 75th season opening dance on June 1, to the Slovenian Grape Festival on September 21. Craft Fair (June 8); Polka Mass and Collinwood Reunion (June 22); Jeff Pecon and Joey Miskulin (July 6); Casual Polka Party (July 13); Balina Tournament (July 27); Button Box Contest (August 3).

On Saturday evening, September 20, join your friends for gala dinner dance to salute SNPJ Farm. The festivities close on Sunday, October 26, with a Polka Brunch.
