The Button Akordion Rocks Slovenian Cultural Club holds a bi-annual accordion championship in Ontario, Canada. Their goal is to spark a revival in the accordion as a cool instrument again. They hope to motivate the younger generation to proudly pick up and strap on the accordion like their parents and grandparents did before them, with the goal of increasing and surpassing the level of popularity the accordion enjoyed in North America in years gone by.
The first Canadian Slovenian Button Accordion Championship was held in 2016 at Slovenski Park, Cambridge, Ontario, Canada. Highlights of this event can be viewed here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zqe5rIcSmm8
