The National Fiddling Day celebration will be on Saturday May 19th from 09:30 – 11:30 AM at the Richmond Memorial Community Centre.
We are very happy to announce that many performers will be on our stage for a free, two hour community concert.
If there are any fiddlers or dancers in Richmond who would like to join in here is the link that gives a run down of the tunes that will be played: www.nationalfiddlingday.com Not only is a great event to commemorate the passing of the legislation that enacted National Fiddling Day, anyone who would like to participate will be welcomed.
We will have a canteen on site for a light breakfast and coffee etc. If anyone would like to stay for the competition the website outlines the full program that will run that weekend: ottawafiddlestepdance.weebly.
There is camping available on site and the details are listed on the website.
