Old Fiddlers’ Convention
84th Annual
August 5-10, 2019

As time for the 84th 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 4th.  Walk in campers will not be admitted until after 4:00 PM.

It has been several years since any increase in fees.  Due to rising costs over the past several years, contestant arm bands will be $45 (refunded for participants) and camping has been increased to $100.  However, we will be increasing our camping sites to approximately 18′ x 32′.

Youth competition will be held on Monday, August 5th 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 5th.  Youth can compete in both the youth and open competition, but must be pre-registered for the open competition.  See rule 3b on youth folk songs and dance.  Also, we will be giving youth contestants ages 12 – 15 a week arm band.  Any youth contestant below the age of 12 gets in free with paid escort.  Click here for full details about the youth competition.

Open competition will start on Tuesday night, August 6th.   Registration deadline is July 15, 2019.   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 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.  Any handicap person that wants to use a golf cart must contact the Galax Moose Lodge Administrator 30 days prior to receive approval and sticker.  Must have approved notice and sticker to bring golf cart in park.  Additional rules have been added.  Click here for contact info.

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

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 84th Annual another success, and we hope to see you August 5 – 10, 2019.
