11th Annual Hoppin’ John Fiddlers’ Convention:
September 14th – 16th, 2017
We’re getting excited about this year’s Hoppin’ John and hope you are, too! While we all know the best parts of this one-of-a-kind festival are meeting with friends new and old, playing music, dancing or just listening and hanging out, we think you’ll like this year’s scheduled offerings, too: great dancing options, showcases and workshops and all those fun family activities, including the one-of-a-kind Hoppin’ John Cook-Off.
We’re still adding workshops and figuring out the schedule…so the site is being updated frequently. Wherever you are in the world this summer, we hope you will end the season right here in beautiful Chatham County, at the 11th Annual Hoppin’ John Old-Time & Bluegrass Fiddlers’ Convention!
