The Red Bridge Fiddle Festival offers activities for all ages! Children will enjoy our expanded area for them filled with music related crafts and activities like the Half-Circle Kids’ Tent, a Music Craft Tent, a quick guitar workshop by the Acoustic Road Show and ‘Kids Jam Area’ with a variety of pans, wooden spoons and old wash-board where they can create their own music.
Food Trucks and refreshments will be available. This year’s event will also feature some farm market vendors mixed in with our music related arts and crafts vendors by the garden and Distlefink. Attendees are urged to bring chairs and blankets and are reminded that pets and alcohol are not allowed.
