 Holy Toledo Polka Days, which was founded by Joe Zalewski and originated in 1992, has been one of the most popular Polka Festivals in the United States. The event had been held annually every April at the Quality Hotel & Conference in South Toledo through 2004, when the hotel proprietor sold the property to a church, the 2005 event was cancelled.  After nearly 15 years Holy Toledo was revived in 2019 and once again is a destination festival for polkas fans across the USA and Canada.
