Berks Fiddle Fest
Sun 19th Sep 2021 9AM – 5:30PM
Mark your calendars for Sunday, September 19th, 2021 and plan on attending the Berks Fiddle Fest at Bear Creek Mountain Resort, our new home.
We are moving the Fiddle Fest out of Lyons for several reasons. Last Year we were cancelled due to COVID-19. Also last year, the creek at the Lyons Park received major damage due to the heavy rains, therefore the park will not be usable for the Fiddle Fest again this year and maybe even for the foreseeable future. The core Planning Team of the Fiddle Fest feel the event is too important to Berks County to wait another year or two before having another festival.
Other reasons include: The Volunteer Staffing has not only aged, but also decreased, causing the set-up, execution, and tear-down to be very challenging the past several years. We were also outgrowing that cozy little park. The Lyons Park has been a great home for us, as we crowded together in the shade, for the past 38 years and we are grateful to the Lyons Borough Council and Community for hosting us all of those years.
We are aware that moving the Fiddle Festival means it will ‘feel’ a little different, as does moving any event, so we are making every attempt to keep the festival as familiar as we can. We are looking forward to gathering at Bear Creek Mountain Resort with plenty of lawn chair seating, more room for the jammers, a new crafter area, and plenty of parking.
A new home, a new name, but the same ‘feel!’ We invite you to the Berks Fiddle Fest on Sunday, September 19th at Bear Creek Mountain Resort, 101 Doe Mountain Ln, Macungie, PA 18062.
