Berks Fiddle Fest

Thank you to all who came out to support local music in Berks County. The fiddlers and band members put on quite a show! We hope to see you at our other events throughout the year. Check out our calendar of events!

Sunday, September 18th 2022  9am - 5:30pm

We have exciting news! We are excited to announce that there will be a live and in-person Fiddle Fest this year.

Mark your calendars for Sunday, September 18th, 2022 and plan on attending the Berks Fiddle Fest at Bear Creek Mountain Resort, our new home.Berks Fiddle Fest no date 257267

We are moving the Fiddle Fest out of Lyons for several reasons. In 2020 we were cancelled due to COVID-19. Also, 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 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 18th at Bear Creek Mountain Resort, 101 Doe Mountain Ln, Macungie, PA 18062.
