Fiddle Fest Weekend
April 4-6, 2014
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. The “Llano Fiddle Fest” group 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,
April 5th, 2014. Festival activities begin on Friday with the Llano Open
Air Fiddle Contest and Anything Goes - Tricks and Lick competition. This
year's contest will include youth, senior, and open divisions. Saturday's
activities will also include an evening music concert. On Sunday morning
a sunrise service with cowboy breakfast and fiddle music program is planned
to conclude the weekend of musical activities.
