Thanks to grant funding from Urbana Arts & Culture, we will offer LOTS of free events, including old-time community jams, concerts, dances, and watching our second annual Fiddle Anti-Contest! We will have even more workshops this year–for fiddle, banjo, dance, and piano–and fiddle players of any age can play in the fiddle anti-contest!

Free events including jams, concerts, and dances do not require a registration. Workshops and the Fiddle Anti-Contest require registration and a small fee. Scholarships are readily available!
