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 El Sistema music program.
Mark your calendars for the 16th Colorado Fiddle Championships – January 6-7, 2018!
The 16th annual Colorado Fiddle Championships will be held on the opening weekend of the National Western Stock Show, January 6 & 7, 2018 in the Beef Palace Auction Arena. The public will be entertained by some of the best fiddlers from Colorado and across the United States, ranging in age from 5 years to 80+ years old.
