All competitions will take place simultaneously in the Summit Trail Solarium. Adults and youth will be judged in separate categories, and prizes will be awarded accordingly.

Registration Information

Registrations close 15 minutes prior to the respective competition. For example, guitar registration closes at 10:45 a.m. and the competition begins at 11:00 a.m.

Be mindful of the competition schedule in order to not miss your competition's time slot. A registration table will be located in the foyer outside the Summit Trail Solarium in the Plemmons Student Union.

  • The order of registration will determine the order of play. Registered competitors who fail to appear when their name is called will be disqualified from that competition.
  • Competitors may only register for one instrument competition. This does not include Dance or String Band.
  • Winners in each youth competition from the 2023 Fiddler's Convention must compete in the adult categories at the 2024 Fiddlers Convention.
