Event description

Description

A long time ago, our grandparents and great-grandparents gathered together in community halls to eat, drink, dance the polka and be merry with family and friends. As those generations depart this world, as music fans increasingly turn away from tradition, and as our cities relentlessly 'modernize', the polka-hall tradition is dying out all over the world.

Well, local folk-rockers The Dreadnoughts have decided to draw a line in the sand and put a stop to this. On June 16, from 5-9 PM, their new traditional polka band, "Polka Time!", will play two rollicking sets of polkas, waltzes and folk dance music at the majestic Alpen Hall. They'll be dishing up traditional food (bratwurst, sauerkraut, pierogi) and serving a full bar of traditional beer on tap. Best of all, admission is only FIVE DOLLARS, with children and folks 55 and over getting in for free!

Even better: those who buy advance tickets with the included plate of food for $15 will receive a free guest pass they can use to bring a friend in for nothing! That's right: you can finally message that match on Tinder and ask them if they want to accompany you to the Polka Dance. Guaranteed success!

"Polka Time!" is going to start a polka revolution in Vancouver, and for just $5 you'll be able to say that you were there when it started. Come on down, eh!
