The Old-Time music tradition born in Surry County and the sounds of sweet music carries throughout the Blue Ridge Mountains from local, national and international musicians at the Annual Mount Airy Old-Time Fiddlers Convention at Veterans Memorial Park in Mount Airy, North Carolina.

Traditionally held the first weekend in June, this family friendly event brings together musicians and fans for two full days of competition, jam sessions, dancing, singing, education, and family entertainment . This popular festival, established in 1972, is dedicated to old-time and bluegrass music, as well as dance. The Fiddlers Convention features solo and band competitions whose winners are awarded cash prizes.

Camping rates are $35 per day for full hook-up campers plus an additional $10 for the wrist band and parking pass. The fee for tents (only) and no full hook-up is $10 per day plus an additional $10 for the wristband and parking pass. Advance reservations must be for the full week and include the wristband fees.
