Colorado Old Time Fiddlers’ Association
Welcome! The Colorado Old Time Fiddlers’ Association (COTFA) is dedicated to fiddling of all kinds, with a special emphasis on contest (Texas Style) fiddling. We produce contests across Colorado, culminating in the Colorado Fiddle Championships at the National Western Stock Show, and provide workshops and other helpful programs for aspiring and veteran fiddlers in the Rocky Mountain Empire.
The 12th annual Colorado Fiddle Championships at the National Western Stock Show hosted over 75 fiddlers during the two day event. Katie Glassman of Denver, Colorado was crowned Grand Champion and awarded our top prize of $1,500. We want to once again thank our outstanding judges, Laura Cash, Bubba Hopkins and Sherry McKenzie and all those who competed. We hope to see you all again January 10th and 11th 2015!
Please watch for our Summer Contest Series beginning in July 2014.
COME, COME, COME on JULY 26, 2014 & plan to join the 4th Annual Fiddle Fest at the Weld County Fair. This high energy contest takes place in the Island Grove Pavilion in Greeley, Colorado. While the fiddlers are playing, the county fair is showing rabbits, displaying quilts and selling the most delicious food.
