The Louis Franklin Championship Fiddle Fest has been retired until further notice. We hope someday to bring this great event back.

The Fiddle Fest began in May 2005 in Whitewright, TX and was last held in May 2010. Fiddlers, Accompanists and Fans came from all over the Country to participate and enjoy the Music Event held in Honor of Louis and his wife Louise for their accomplishments and lifelong support of Texas Fiddling.

You can browse through pictures of past Fiddle Fests and see the results of the competitions below. You may also visit the Texas Old Time Fiddlers Association website for info concerning all events held each year at www.totfa.org
