Welcome!

  Welcome once again to our Southwest Polka Party website. Here you will find all the information for the upcoming big celebration of the “25th Annual Southwest Polka Party” held at the Orleans Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. Dates for this event are February 8, 9, 10 & 11, 2016.


  To help celebrate this monumental occasion, we are extending dancing to include Monday night, but we are limited to the first 350 paid reservations for that night, as dancing will only be in the Esplanade room. There will be open seating that night. We are calling this dance a “Mardi Gras Party” and will be a festive four hour dance with Polka Power from California starting the evening’s music and switching off with our Alaska band – the Alaska Polka Chips. You will have a chance to win many special door prizes that night as well. It’s sure to be a sell-out, so if you are interested in Monday night, be sure to get your ticket early as they will go fast.


   Also, to make this year a little bigger, we have 6 bands performing in the ballrooms which include Polka Power from California, the Alaska Polka Chips from Alaska, Barefoot Becky from Iowa, the Polka Nuts from Colorado, the Fugitives from Manitoba and Julie Lee & her White Rose Band from North Dakota. See the band schedule for specific times of each band’s performances.


  To get you all warmed up, Father Arnold Kari from South Dakota will again be playing his Petosa accordion to entertain you from 11:00 to 12:30 on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday in the Esplanade Ballroom.


  One change this year is that we will be accepting credit cards for payment. We will start accepting Visa, Master Card or Discover sometime around the end of May for those choosing to make payment in this way. Your reservations will be guaranteed upon receipt of your credit card payment or receipt of your check.


  Reservations can be made by calling Julie at 701-367-9696 if you want to give your credit card number for payment. You can also email Julie at julielee@whiteroseband.com, but DO NOT leave your credit card info on an email, you MUST call to leave your number. Remember – emails are not secure and we don’t want credit card numbers on an email for your protection.
