The world’s oldest and largest Old Fiddlers’ Convention takes place in Galax, Virginia the second week of August
The Old Fiddlers Convention has grown a lot over the years. What started out as two, seasonal, day-long, indoor conventions has slowly expanded into one, week-long celebratory extravaganza. Musicians come from all over to show their skill and compete for the thousands of dollars in cash prizes. A shrinking minority have been coming here since 1935 – most would come even if there were no prizes.
The Old Fiddlers Convention takes place in Galax’ Felts Park. Felts Park includes a covered grandstand but you can also bring a picnic blanket or lawn chair. A wide variety of food and drinks will be available for purchase, along with musical and other merchandise from various vendors.
