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.
On January 9 & 10, 2016 join us for the 14th annual Colorado Fiddle Championships at the National Western Stock Show in the Beef Auction Palace. 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.
