MSOTFA Event Calendar
Twin Lakes National Fiddler Championship
The Twin Lakes National Fiddler Championship contest is held annually on Saturday on each 3rd weekend of July on the courthouse square in Leitchfield, KY starting at 9 am CDT. The competition awards over $10,000 in prices and features six age categories of Fiddling, Dancing, flatpick guitar, mandolin, and banjo.
All events are free and there are no registration fees.
The fiddling divisions are certified by the National Oldtime Fiddlers’ Contest and the National Oldtime Fiddlers’ Association (NOTFA). Certifications were established to insure that oldtime fiddling activities throughout the nation were being coordinated in a professional and positive manner. Division winners will have their pictures posted in the NOTFA Hall of Fame in Weiser, Idaho. Winners will be furnished with a special NOTFA Certificate of Award (suitable for framing) and given special recognition at events during the National Contest each June. In addition, Certified Winners are given a certified ribbon along with their contestant ribbon. Furthermore, they will be eligible to participate in the Certified Showcase Contest at National Contest. T he overall champion of all fiddle categories will be determined during the Championship Fiddle-Off.
In addition to fiddling, there will be many activities for the entire family such as rides and a street dance. The square will host to vendors booths, children activities, a car show, and much more.
On Saturday evening after the competition, there will be a free concert by The Grascals, a three-time Grammy® nominated and two-time IBMA Entertainer of the Year Band
