Background

The Fiddlers’ Jamboree was first held in the kitchen of the Grande Prairie Museum in 1987 and continues to see multigenerational performers take the stage in different capacities and varying skill levels. It has remained a significant part of the Grande Prairie Museum and their efforts to preserve the heritage of old-time fiddle music that expands across generations and cultures.
