Note from the Fiddlers Festival Committee
From the 1952 Program Book: The object of our contest is to PERPETUATE OLD-TIME TUNES AND THE OLD-FASHIONED way of entertaining -- in GOOD OLD SUMMERTIME. This day has been set aside by the fiddlers festival committee, with the cooperation of the Crockett Merchants, as a day of -- Fiddlin', Frolickin', Foolishness and FUN -- under the shade of the giant oaks in the Davy Crockett Memorial Park in Crockett, Texas. Come join us in the fun.
The new fiddlers festival committee has the same objective, the only difference is the time of year. The fiddlers festival committee members thank you all for attending and participating in the 79th World Championship Fiddlers Festival, it’s people like you who make the festival a great success each year.
