The Corporation is organized for the charitable and educational purposes of fostering and promoting oldtime and traditional fiddling and related traditional arts, including, but not limited to, conducting research, providing instruction, maintaining archives and collections on oldtime and traditional fiddling and related traditional arts, and conducting and sponsoring public shows, exhibitions and competitions of such art.

We’re working hard here at the Fiddle Office getting the latest in forms and updates prepared for contestants as well as the latest in contest and festival information for our attendees.

Our Board of Directors and volunteers are looking forward to our 68th annual, 2021 event.

Check here as we continue to update and add information or changes. Contestants’ and Accompanists’ Registration Packets are now available. Festival Vendors and Entertainer Registration forms are also available in the Festival section.

We are pleased to continue holding the contest in the auditorium at Weiser High School. The sound is great and the seating is pleasant for all.

We have our NATIONAL OLDTIME FIDDLING competitions as well as the ever-popular TWIN FIDDLING and SWING FIDDLING competitions to really add some great musical styles to the show!

Please bear with us as we complete each area and make the information available to you. If you have a question that needs an immediate answer, please feel free to call us! (208) 414-0255 Monday—Friday, 9-5, or [email protected].
