Polka is celebration; it’s community; it’s family. It’s also our official state dance. And perhaps no town in Wisconsin is as polka mad as Pulaski. Shawn Connelly brought his dancing shoes to the four-day Pulaski Polka Days festival.


Shawn Connelly is a musician and producer base out of Green Bay. He’s currently working on The Wisconsin Polka Project, a documentary series capturing the stories of polka from the people who lived it. To find out more and share your story visit Wisconsin Polka.
