Colorado Oldtime Fiddlers’ Association
Welcome! The Colorado Oldtime Fiddlers’ Association (COTFA) is dedicated to promoting and preserving the traditional American art form of old-time fiddling. We sponsor and support fiddle contests across Colorado, including the Colorado Fiddle Championships; provide fiddle and guitar workshops; sponsor square dances; hold jam sessions; and support community outreach programs, including the Elyria-Swansea-Globeville Business Association holiday party and the El Sistema music program.
The 15th annual Colorado Fiddle Championships will be held January 7 & 8, 2017 at the National Western Stock Show in the Beef Palace Auction Arena. The public is welcome to walk in, sit down and enjoy this toe-tapping entertainment. Some of the best fiddlers from Colorado and across the United States, ranging in age from 5 years – 80+ years old compete for over $8,800 in prize money. This event provides musicians the opportunity to show case their talents, entertain and educate the public on this historic art form.
