The Festival Committee proudly presents the

70th Maritime Fiddle Festival

July 5 - 8, 2019

Please join us in July, 2019 as we celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Maritime Fiddle Festival!


Since 1950, the Maritime Fiddle Festival has been the source for lively entertainment, spirited and fun competition, and traditional Nova Scotian hospitality.
It has grown from a small fundraiser originally organized to help build a community church, to Canada’s longest running old-time fiddle festival and competition.

Every year the festival welcomes participants, bus tours, and audiences from across North America and around the world.

Whether you are a fiddle player interested in competition or just have a love of great music, join us in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia for some of the best old-time fiddle entertainment anywhere in the world.
