Kansas State Fiddling and Picking Festival
August 28th 2016, Lawrence, Kansas

36th Annual Kansas State Fiddling & Picking Championships

This long running event resembles a reunion as musicians form circles jamming under trees throughout the park. Former contestants return as professional performers. Some competitors are the second and third generations of their family to participate. Fans gather on blankets to enjoy music and cheer on their friends as they compete. Food vendors, artists and community groups fill the street and park paths. For many years, luthiers have joined the event to share their latest original handmade instruments. Mark your calendar for the 36th Annual — August 28, 2016.
