 70th Annual Fiddlers' Jam in 2021 features multiple stages with performances by bluegrass bands, open mic, acoustic jam sessions (bring your strings). Paired with country BBQ, artisan crafts, Fiddletown award-winning wine, microbrew beer, historic gold rush building tours, and more! FREE entry. Parking is limited at this pet-friendly event.

Fiddletown is nestled in the Sierra foothills 40 miles east of Sacramento and 6 miles east of Plymouth.

As Fiddletown and the Shenandoah Valley are well known for growing grapes that produce distinctive award winning wines, wine by the glass in addition to craft beers by Amador Brewing Co. will be available for purchase.

In addition to the fiddling music and a contest with over $1000 in cash prizes, entertainment by favorites such as Sidetrack, Mokelumne Crossing, Joann and Felipe Ferraz and Giorgi offer non-stop music.

Crafters sell unique boutique items, carved collectibles, and a variety of wares. The candy store stays open and the Mother Lode Scots sell their delicious homemade baked goods. On top of all this you can spend some time enjoying a walk through town looking at the town's Gold Rush era buildings. There are several raffles including one for a gas grill valued at over $400. All proceeds benefit the Fiddletown Community Center.
