The Confédération Internationale des Accordéonistes
(CIA) is pleased to welcome you to World Accordion Day.
The next event is scheduled on May 6th, 2016.
For the past six years on May 6th, the CIA has been promoting
World Accordion day.
World Accordion Day held on 6th May 2009, marked the 180th birthday
of the accordion - May 6th 1829, was the date the accordion was first patented, in Vienna, Austria, by Cyrillius Demien.
Since 2009, World Accordion Day has been very successful, generating a lot of positive publicity for the accordion.
Every association, group, orchestra, performer and teacher, is asked to actively support this event by encouraging national and local accordion activities to happen in their country on this day or the weekend either side of Accordion Day if that should be more convenient.
Everyone can register their World Accordion Day activity on the website and send a report of their event after for the website. Register
Please join us for this annual celebration,
as accordionists from around the world pay homage to our wonderful
instrument. This global event will serve as an exciting means
of bringing us together in our efforts to promote and elevate
the awareness and status of the accordion!
