A Note About Competition
All bands, duets and individuals must compete either Friday night or Saturday between 10 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Please play Friday night if you can.

The Saturday daytime competition is intended for those who cannot play Friday night because of work, etc. We usually end up with more contestants than we can get on stage before 5:30 p.m. on Saturday.

Nonetheless, the band preliminaries and individual competition must end at 5:30. We have to tally scores so we can announce the finalist bands, give them a little time to choose their tunes for the playoffs, and give the judges a supper break. During this time we also hold the dance contest and present youth awards.

If you can't play Friday night we recommend that you come early Saturday.

Dance contests for all categories begin at 5:30 p.m. Saturday. You may sign up backstage any time during registration hours. Please come backstage before 5:30 p.m. Saturday to line up for competition.

The Alleghany County Fiddlers Convention volunteers appreciate YOU!
