4 accordions T-Shirt


The festival had its beginning in 1997 when Joanna Arnold Darrow (NJ) was coming for a visit to the Twin Cities. We really wanted the good folks of the Twin Cities to be able to hear her perform so a few of us had an open party at a local restaurant. We had an amazing amount of fun and just had to do it again!

The NE Accordion Festival has been so successful that it has outgrown not only our first location but also a larger space provided by a local art gallery. After busting the seams of the gallery, the festival explored both the Cedar Cultural Center, the Local Elks Club and Elsie's Bowling Center to migrate to our very own Minneapolis Park Board Waite Park Recreational Center. Thank you, City of Minneapolis!

Yes, the accordion is alive and well (and blossoming) in Minneapolis/St. Paul!

Accordionly yours,
Dee Langley
