Vendors + Activities

Enjoy the stage show or stroll through the event grounds. A highlight of the day is the jamming and singing taking place throughout the venue. Visitors can stroll through the event grounds and listen to the blend of music heard amidst Fiddlers Field.

In the woodlands flanking the stage, musicians play tunes using a variety of instruments such as guitars, banjos, and mandolins, and perform styles such as bluegrass, old-time, and gospel. 

Visit a variety of vendors, featuring crafts, foods, and novelties. Grab lunch from one of the great food trucks!

Children and those new to string instruments are encouraged to come learn by observing and talking to the musicians in this relaxed atmosphere. 

Lawn chairs and blankets are encouraged. Tents and canopies are not permitted within Fiddlers Field. Alcohol is prohibited. Pets are welcome but must be on a six-foot lead.
