2014 Hoppin’ John Fiddlers’ Convention:
September 18th – 20th
Come on out to Shakori Hills, for a new take on the familiar sights and sounds of a traditional fiddlers’ convention, located on 72 acres of rolling meadows and ancient oaks.
Tickets are available at the gate.
It’s coming up fast! We’re looking forward, and hope you are too, to the best Hoppin’ John Fiddlers’ Convention yet!
Don’t forget about the hoppin’ john cook-off , a sweet part of the event in which everyone can participate. Try out your
hoppin’ john recipe on everyone at the festival. Cook-off contestants get a refund on their Saturday admission – our way of saying thanks for buying all those black-eyed peas!
New in store this year is the Appalchian-Style TEAM Clogging Competition, some unique showcases and more varied children’s categories, along with the same great workshops, dances and children’s activities. But, of course, the best things about Hoppin’ John aren’t scheduled!
Whatever your favorite parts of the festival — sitting around a campfire with friends, playing and listening to music until the wee hours of the morning; dancing in the magnificent yellow and white tent (which is even nicer when it’s raining); taking a chance and getting up on that stage just because it feels good or peacefully relaxing in the field watching it happen; cooking up a storm to feed the festival or just your campsite, or perhaps just the random moments that can only happen at a place like Shakori Hills, it’s coming right up…
Hope to see you and your friends very soon!
****All proceeds from Hoppin’ John go to benefit the Shakori Hills Community Arts Center, a NC not-for-profit corporation.****
