Indiana State Picking and Fiddling Contest
NEW DATE! Saturday, Oct. 3rd
Dear Indiana State Picking & Fiddling Championship Performers & Supporters; In 1985 the Indiana State General Assembly made an Official Indiana State Picking & Fiddling Championship. It includes; fiddle, guitar, banjo, mandolin, singers and free style clogging. The Championships will have a new host of the event! The Championships will be brought to you by Boonville NOW and held in conjunction with the Boonville Square Flare event on October 3rd, 2015. In 2008 the Gibson County Tourism Bureau turned over the event to The Labor Day Association where they held the event over the 4-day weekend until 2014. Unfortunately, there have been problems with people scheduling around the “last” holiday of the summer so the event has been separated from The Labor Day Association and given its own home in Boonville on the first Saturday in October. Many of the people who have helped put this event on since 2008 will be there for the Championships at this new location. This event will set a new standard on how the Championships will be produced. We are working on booking nationally known judges and expanding our categories. The Championships will be a one day competition and with the Boonville Merchant’s Square Flare an annual event that has focused on craft booths, food, and music. It has been a fall event that many crafters have looked forward to since 2006 and will be the perfect accompaniment to the ISP&FC fans. Nancy Joe’s Hidden Treasurers has donated the use of her building at 102 East Sycamore Street a building that has over 15,000 sq ft available for our use. We will give out over $5,000.00 in price money. Boonville is just 15 minutes East of Evansville, Indiana on a 4 lane highway- with several hotels and motels just minutes away. To see more information about Boonville please check out the website http://www.cityofboonvilleindiana.com. Concessions will be available as well as entertainment for the “little pickers”. We ask you to attend the Championships this year and help us keep this wonderful tradition alive! Make plans to come to the Boonville, Indiana on October 3rd --- so bring your lawn chairs. Our doors are open and the welcome mat is out. Charlie Wyatt Indiana State Picking & Fiddling Championships Fundraising Chairman
