Dear Friends,

As time for the 79th Annual Old Fiddlers' Convention will soon be here, we have included a program schedule including youth competition and registration form for the open competition on this website for your convenience.

Please read the rules and be sure you are familiar with all the changes.  Camping gate will open at 7:00 AM on Sunday, August 3rd.  Walk in campers will not be admitted until after 4:00 PM.

Youth competition will be held on Monday, August 4th at 5:30 PM.  No advance registration for youth competition.   Registration will be held from 2:30 PM until 4:30 PM for the youth on Monday, August 4th.  Youth can compete in both the youth and open competition, but must be pre-registered for the open competition.  Click here for full details about the youth competition.

Open competition will start on Tuesday night, August 5th.   Registration deadline is July 15, 2014.   Remember to register band members as well as any individual you wish to register.  If playing in individual competition, please be sure to register in the specific category you wish to compete in but only one.  Click here for a complete list of rules for the competition. 

All registered contestants must check in at the main gate and identify themselves as registered contestants and in the specific category or band they are registered in.  A picture ID will be required at check in, both at the gate and at the registration table.  Please read all the rules and make anyone you register aware of our rules.

Register early.  If there is any possibility you will participate, be sure to send in your registration.

Due to increasing cost of maintaining the camping area over the past years, there will be no refund for the contestant camping.

Open competition starts at 6:00 PM each night and noon on Saturday.  Youth competition starts at 5:30 PM on Monday.


If you want to confirm your registration, please send a self-addressed stamped postcard along with your registration form, and we will sign and return it to confirm your registration.  We appreciate your cooperation in making the 79th Annual another success, and we hope to see you August 4 - 9, 2014.

Sincerely yours,

Tom Jones
Publicity Chairman
