The day includes music on the main pavilion with J&S Playboys from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
A free dance in the polka pavilion with Red Ravens and the Jodie Mikula Orchestra will be held from 1 to 9 p.m.
An auction, featuring cattle and a variety of antiques, begins at 1 p.m.
Rides and games for children will be available all afternoon. A washer-pitching tournament starts at 5 p.m.
There will also be bingo from noon to 6 p.m., a cake walk, country store and religious gifts booth.
Concessions will be available throughout the day.
