Twin Lakes National Fiddler Championship
The City of Leitchfield has announced that the Leitchfield Freedom Festival and Twin Lakes National Fiddler Championship will be cancelled for 2020 due to concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic and for the safety of the participants, audience and the community.
We would like to thank all the participants who had committed to attend this year and hope you understand that safety is our number one concern. Please mark your calendars to join us for the 2021 Twin Lakes National Fiddler Championship to be held on Saturday July 17, 2021.
The Tenth Annual Twin Lakes National Fiddler Championship will be held on the courthouse square in downtown Leitchfield, Grayson Co., Kentucky on July 17, 2021. The competition awards over $12,000 in prices and features six age categories of Fiddling, Dancing, flatpick guitar, mandolin, and banjo. The total prizes over the six Fiddle categories is one of the largest in the US.
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.
The 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.
