The National Cleveland-Style Polka Hall of Fame and Museum is a museum in Euclid, Ohio, United States. It traces the history of the Cleveland-style polka, from its Slovenian roots from the 19th century, through American factory and mining towns where it absorbed jazz and country expressions, to the post-war years when top ten polka hits got the nation on the dance floor.
The Polka Hall of Fame holds an annual awards show on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, during the three-day Thanksgiving Polka Weekend at the Downtown Marriott Hotel on Public Square in Cleveland, Ohio. The show awards local and national polka groups and talents.
The museum is located in the historic old city hall of Euclid, Ohio. The building was renovated in 2000.
