The Fiddletown Community Center presents an music festival which celebrates its 65th year in 2017. Held on Main Street in Fiddletown, it offers free, fun, family-friendly entertainment.

Last year Sidetrack and Mokelumne Crossing performed.  Food such as Santa Maria style BBQ is served (last year by Incahoots,) and award winning wines from Amador County and craft beer by Amador Brewing Co. are sold. 

Each year there are raffles, craft vendors, a horseshoe tournament and a fiddlers' contest with $1000 in cash prizes. A free shuttle is provided to and from the parking area.

At this annual fiddle music festival fiddlers from near and far gather. The main street in Fiddletown is closed for the event and the entire town becomes a stage to some of the best fiddlin' music around.

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.

Events are not guaranteed. It is your responsibility to confirm before going.
