Participate in our old-time contest
If you are a beginning or intermediate player, you can register online or on the day of the festival. Advanced competitors must pre-register online to be given a time slot on the Performance Stage on the Stow House Main Lawn.
Jam at the Festival
At the heart of any great old-time festival is the jamming! Fiddles, banjos, guitars, mandolins, washtub basses, and other stringed instruments are picked, plucked, strummed and banged on in jams that vary in size, from 2 to 25 people!
