Dee LangleyOn Sunday November 7th the Acme Button Box Club in Westmont, New Jersey, opens in grand style with a one day festival. Throughout the day, from 9am to 4pm, there will be performances and an accordion market where anyone who has an instrument they would like to display for sale may do so, by prior arrangement. All festival events are free.

The new Acme Button Club will meet each Friday evening beginning at 8pm, and all meetings – including the festival on November 7th - will be held at the Acme Accordion School & Musikgarten, 322 Haddon Ave, Westmont, NJ 08108.

the Westmont Philharmonia Accordion Orchestra, Westmont Accordion Clubs, the ACME Accordion School Junior Band, Preparatory Band, and Musikgarten Ensembles.
