WV Open Fiddle, Banjo, & Flatfoot Contest

September 12, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

The WV Open Fiddle, Banjo & Flatfoot Dance Contest will be held on Saturday, September 12th in the Augusta Dance Pavilion at Davis & Elkins College (this is a change in location). Contest registration begins at 11am, and the contest begins at 1pm. Augusta has been organizing this contest for many years, and it has been co-sponsored by the Randolph County Fair in the recent past. Unfortunately and despite their best efforts, the Fair is not able to support the contest this year. As a result, Augusta is going to hold the contest this year on campus. The contest is a wonderful way to celebrate our rich musical heritage and showcase some of the talented musicians from around the state. The event will be free and open to the public. There will be cash prizes for fiddle, banjo & flatfoot dancing. This event is sponsored by Augusta Heritage Center of Davis & Elkins College, Smakula Fretted Instruments, Christy Tribble CPA AC, and several anonymous donors.
Make a weekend of it and join us on Friday, September 11th for the Elkins Monthly Square Dance in the pavilion at 8pm with the Davis & Elkins College Appalachian Ensemble String Band and calling by Taylor Runner. Admission is $6 and $4 for students.
Please share with Fiddlers, Banjo Players and Dancers throughout the region! It’s going to be a good time.
