Since 1953, during a week long musical celebration, Weiser, Idaho has played host to fiddlers and friends from around the World. Dedicated to preserving and perpetuating fiddle music for generations to come, this annual festival offers many opportunities to listen and learn from some of the best musicians in the country. Weiser becomes a mecca for music throughout the town and the many temporary camping communities.

The contest is one of the most prestigious fiddling events in the world and hosts 350 top competitors in the week long venture to hold one of eight National division titles.

As part of the National Oldtime Fiddlers' Inc., Weiser is also headquarters for the National Oldtime Fiddlers' Association and home of the National Fiddlers Hall of Fame.

If you are interested in supporting our continued efforts to preserve and promote old time fiddle music in America, give us a call and we will send you an information packet, which includes a complimentary copy of our bi-monthly newspaper.

We hope you will come be a part of our fiddling family. Come visit us at the National Oldtime Fiddlers' Contest® and Festival this June.
