This unique event is a favorite of all who love old-time music. Scores of West Virginia’s master fiddlers, pickers, and singers gather, along with hundreds of local folks and visitors for a weekend of fun, packed with jam sessions throughout the weekend, informal concerts, and renewal of friendships.
On Friday night, November 1, the Fiddlers’ Reunion kicks off with a Halloween Square Dance at 8:00 pm. (Costumes are encouraged but not required.) The dance will be held in Great Room of the Randolph County Community Arts Center. Live music will be provided by the October Old-Time Week staff. $6 per person.
On Saturday, November 2, 10:00 am to 5:00 pm, the Fiddlers’ Reunion events center around a concert stage. All day you will enjoy the performances of invited old-time master fiddlers and younger old-time musicians from all over the region.
A freestyle clogging and flatfoot dancing contest will be held on the stage beginning at 4:00 pm. Cash prizes will be awarded. Exhibits and sales by instrument and food vendors will be nearby. Throughout the day, tune and song swaps feature traditional singers from all over the region, and jam sessions go on far into the night. Admission is free.
