Cloverdale Fiddle Festival

The Cloverdale Fiddle Festival features a rousing fiddle contest plus bluegrass and old-time music performances on a separate stage. It's a family-friendly event with jam sessions and workshops.

Your hosts, the Cloverdale Citrus Fair, the California State Old Time Fiddle Association and the Sonoma County Folk Society are looking forward to presenting another fine festival. We also get a big assist from Lagunitas Brewery. Thank you Lagunitas!!!


In addition to the fiddle contest, you can look forward to performances and workshops on the California Bluegrass Associations Jamming Stage.  Check the Entertainment page on this website for performers as things develop. 

RV and tent camping are available on a first come first serve basis. Electricity and showers are available and patrons are encouraged to stay Friday and Saturday nights to take advantage of the jamming opportunities.

Fiddlers are encouraged to preregister to avoid the long lines incurred in same-day registration. Rules are posted under contestant rules.  Remember Cloverdale is an independent fiddle contest and not subject to the rules of the California State Old Time Fiddle Association. However, it does make a nice warm-up for the National Contest in Weiser, Idaho. There has been one change to the fiddle contest format:  Due to time constraints, The winners of the Waltz division will be determined by compiling all fiddlers waltz scores in their respective divisions. The highest scores will be considered the winner.

We here in Cloverdale hope you continue to support this fine festival as we continue to carry the spirit of old-time fiddling into the future.
