This week we are excited to spotlight a family fun event at the Polk County Fairgrounds starting today! The Oregon Old Time Fiddlers State Convention is here to entertain and educate the whole family! This event starts today, April 4th, and lasts until April 7th for a four-day event!
The Oldtime Fiddlers’ Associate in a nonprofit organization dedicated to the continuation and promotion of old-time music. The Oregon Oldtime Fiddlers’ Association is over fifty years old and has musical roots from many places; including the Appalachia Mountains, Louisiana bayous, Minnesota, even as far as Scotland, Ireland, and England. Each April the Oldtime Fiddlers’ Association holds a convention at Polk County Fairgrounds to share their love and knowledge of music with the public.
Founded in 1913 Polk County Fairgrounds has been dedicated to the idea of providing the general public and community with the space, buildings, and equipment needed to engage in events for over a century. The Polk County Fairgrounds hosts events year-round designed to promote fun, learning and social activity for everyone- especially where children can benefit. The Polk County Fairgrounds have not limited themselves to just events either. They provide space for multiple group meetings; from dog training to CourtCare and Workshops. Year after year the hard workers at the Polk County Fairgrounds work to improve their events and facilities, all while delivering a great time to our families in the community.
Take advantage of this great opportunity to support our local fairgrounds and learn about Oregon music, and bring the whole family!
