On May 6, we celebrate World Accordion Day commemorating the 189th anniversary of the first registered accordion patent by Cyril Demian (Austria). The annual event was initiated by Confédération Internationale des Accordéonistes (CIA) which recognizes the instrument’s artist virtuosi and influential spokespersons in a compendium listing that includes Helmi Strahl Harrington, Ph.D.

For a complete schedule of 10:00 AM to 9:00 PM events, please watch for announcements on our website www.worldofaccordions.org, or phone 218-393-0245.
