The Old-Time Fiddlers' Festival is brought to you by Goleta Valley Historical Society, stewards of Rancho La Patera & Stow House.
“One of the oldest and most respected of Santa Barbara’s now vast and growing list of festivals, the Old-Time Fiddler’s Convention and Festival, takes its “old” status proudly and seriously, as part of its very core identity and mission. Modernity and future-think are scarcely considered, in a festival that pays homage to pre-20th century American music and its 21st century descendants.”
– Josef Woodard, Santa Barbara News-Press
Goleta Valley Historical Society will host the 49th Annual Santa Barbara Old-Time Fiddlers' Festival online this year due to the current pandemic.
