Since its inception in 1977, the Festival of American Fiddle Tunes has been one of the largest celebrations of traditional music west of the Mississippi.

More than 30 faculty members from four different countries share a rich history and diverse styles of fiddle music with hundreds of participants in a weeklong, multigenerational workshop. Classes, band labs, dances, concerts, open jams, and informal and spontaneous gatherings culminate in mainstage performances that welcome thousands of audience members to experience the tapestry of North American fiddle styles.

Tickets on sale to donors starting April 15. Tickets sales open to the general public on May 1st.
