Residents of Shady Pines RV Park in Jacksonville who enjoy fiddle music will have a grand time at the 81st Annual Old Fiddlers Contest and Reunion in Athens on May 25th. Known nationwide, the event is unquestionably one of the oldest of such competitions in the country. Come tap your foot and clap your hands to the lively music produced by this instrument as incredibly skilled musicians display their talents.
Five contests will be held, four of which are comprised of men divided into different age groups and one of which is comprised solely of ladies. Following these competitions, the winners of each division will battle it out to determine who is awarded the honor of being named Grand Champion. Concluding the day’s festivities will be a street dance in front of the bandstand.
Bring the whole family, as the appeal of fiddling transcends all generations. Our park is only an hour’s distance from this fine entertainment. Visit our website and reserve your spot today.
