3 Berlin Fiddlers Convention, Berlin

September 20-22, 2019

Fiddlers on the roofs. Fiddlers in the bars. Fiddlers on the streets. Heck, you pretty much can’t swing a cat without hitting a fiddler at this epic string-stravaganza. Now in its 27th year, the streets of America’s Coolest Small Town flood with fans each year. And now, this already-amazing event has added the Maryland State Flatpicking Guitar Championship, proving that the fiddlers of Berlin welcome all sorts of sounds. Make your plans now, because the hotels will fill up, and these sounds will stay with you forever.
