We are thrilled to be back at the National Western Stock Show for our 20th Annual Colorado Fiddle Championships, January 7 & 8 2023!
The contest is annually held the first weekend in the Beef Palace Auction Arena at the National Western Complex. The Colorado Fiddle Championships draws nationally recognized fiddlers, including previous Grand Champions of the National Oldtime Fiddlers contest, Bob Wills Fiddle Festival & Contest, Texas State Championships/Fiddlers Frolics and Grand Masters Champions.
COTFA is so proud to have Aarun Carter, Kimber Ludiker and Luke Price judge this year’s contest!
For the fifth year, we are offering a Bob Wills Swing Fiddle division! This exciting division has been officially sanctioned by the Bob Wills Heritage Foundation Inc., which seeks to preserve and promote Bob Will’s legacy through publications, recordings, educational outreach, events – all avenues to share the music and story of this American innovator and artist.

There will be a judged guitar accompanist division. We are proud and honored to have Jake Jabs of American Furniture Warehouse sponsor this division.
