2020 National Oldtime Fiddlers’ Contest and Festival Cancelled

This morning, The National Oldtime Fiddlers’ Contest and Festival Board held an emergency meeting. We have come to the decision that the 2020 Contest and Festival will be canceled. We look forward to celebrating the 68th year of the Contest and Festival in June, 2021.

Our decision was not made lightly. We had to consider the current situation we are in and examine the outlook for the coming months. Additionally, we had to consider the reality of participants’ ability to travel in June – both financial and physical. This is the necessary and right decision for the safety of our community and all participants.

The official 2021 dates are June 20th – 26th.

We all look forward to one big reunion with all of you in the third full week of June, 2021!
