18 Years and Counting!

It was 1998 when the Las Vegas International Accordion Convention was conceived and with the help of several great friends, the first event took place August 6 – 10, 2000, as we celebrated taking the accordion into the new millennium. Over the years, we have been fortunate to host the largest gathering of accordion stars.

We have gone through our archives to list some information about each year's event. Feel free to browse the past events for an idea of what the future holds!
