The Old Time Fiddle Contest is open to musicians as young as 3 and often features veteran musicians 65 and older. All put on a great show with wonderful, down-home music, vying for a chance to represent the state in the national contest.

Fall has been welcomed into the Rim Country by the sound of fiddle music for more than 40 years. This year will be no different. The 41st Annual Old Time Fiddle Contest is Saturday, Sept. 24 and Sunday, Sept. 25 at the Payson Event Center. Before the fiddlin’ fireworks start, a special Old Time Opry concert is planned at 7 p.m., Friday, Sept. 23 at the Payson High School Auditorium. The concert features The Desert Sons, The HillBenders and Run Boy Run, which is based in Tucson and plays acoustic, folk and roots music.
