Fiddlers from near and far will once again gather for Fiddletown’s 66th Annual Fiddlers’ Jam and Contest. The main street in Fiddletown will be closed and the entire town will become a stage to some of the best fiddlin’ music around.
In addition to the fiddling music and a contest with over $1000 in cash prizes, entertainment will be provided by Sidetrack, Mokelumne Crossing, and Giorgi. Crafters will be selling their wares, the candy store will be open, and the Mother Lode Scots will be selling their delicious homemade baked goods. On top of all this you can spend some time enjoying a walk through town looking at the town’s Gold Rush era buildings. There are several raffles including one for a gas barbeque grill valued at over $400. All proceeds benefit the Fiddletown Community Center.
Available again this year will be Santa Maria style barbeque by Incahoots. As Fiddletown and the Shenandoah Valley are well known for growing grapes that produce distinctive award winning wines, wine by the glass in addition to craft beers by Amador Brewing Co. will be available for purchase.
