Fiddle Fest Weekend 2017
Llano Fiddle Fest Weekend will be returning to Llano, Texas, the 1st weekend in April! Llano traditionally held a popular fiddle contest for twenty years - an established event that was held in early April and brought many talented fiddlers and music fans from Texas and beyond. A local group of Texas fiddle enthusiasts reintroduced the event in 2011, and it was hugely successful!
Llano Fiddle Fest is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization with event donations directed to charities and non-profit organizations. Our mission is to enrich and preserve the art of Texas style fiddling/music. A family-friendly event, the fiddle contest is part of Llano Fiddle Fest weekend.
The Llano Open Fiddle Contest will be held at the historic LanTex Theater in downtown Llano on Saturday. Festival activities begin on Friday with the Llano Air Fiddle and Anything Goes - Tricks and Licks competitions. This year's Open Fiddle Contest will include youth, senior, open, and accompanist divisions. Saturday's activities will also include an evening music concert. On Sunday morning, an early service with cowboy breakfast and Texas fiddle music will conclude the weekend of musical activities.
