2019 National Fiddling Day

2019 National Fiddling Day

The 2019 National Fiddling Day is May 18. Send us your events so we can share them.

“I envisioned National Fiddling Day to be a whole day of celebration where fiddlers share their talent, lifting spirits and making people happy. Like Canada, it [fiddling] embraces and accommodates many different styles and traditions, allowing each to thrive and flourish — even while we create an entirely new sound.”

— Senator Elizabeth Hubley May 18 2016
