About this event

Goleta Valley Historical Society will host the 46th Annual Old-Time Fiddlers’ Convention & Festival at Rancho La Patera & Stow House on Sunday, October 13, 2019. The festival’s artistic director is old-time musician/teacher/documentarian David Bragger.

The music festival features all day entertainment, one of the premier Old-Time Music contests on the West Coast, free workshops taught by some of the best teachers in the tradition, opportunities to “jam” with other musicians, family friendly fun and much more.

The goal of the festival is to share and preserve Old-Time Music, an important part of our country’s rich heritage and encourage a new generation to embrace music. Music education opportunities such as free instrument workshops and led jam sessions will be hosted throughout the day. Children (and adults!) can even visit an Instrument Petting Zoo!
