Fiddling is fun!

District 3's goal is to keep old-time fiddling alive in our community. Our members range from the very young to the wisest among us. We strive to hook children into fiddling early so that it becomes part of their lifestyle. Our district includes the counties of Kern, Inyo and San Luis Obispo plus parts of Monterey and San Bernardino counties.


Mark your calendars this year for both the Amateur Contest and the annual "Fiddln' Down the Tracks" contest. The Amateur Contest will be held on Saturday, March 14th, 2015, at Carden School in Tehachapi. The 39th annual Fiddlin' Down the Tracks fiddle contest will on Friday and Saturday, September 18th and 19th, 2015, at the Country Oaks Baptist Church in Tehachapi. Please click on Fiddle Contest for contest categories, schedule, and rules.
