thinking about heading out to stickerville next wednesday 6/23. somebody suggested that things might be winding down by then.. the website says it goes from 6/16-6/27, i had assumed the second weekend was the big weekend, but maybe not? interested to hear from those who have been before, when's the best time to arrive (assuming you can only afford a couple days off work).

Well, since no one else has spoken up, I guess I'll give my 2 cents worth. I haven't been to Weiser in about 15 years, but I usually did what you're planning on. Got there on Thursday before the final weekend.

Wait, it's been 25 years, not 15. Jeez, I get my decades mixed up anymore. I don't things got going quite so early back then.

Looks like not many of those who currently populate FHO have been there, me included.

I guess I'd go early looking for a jamming atmosphere, but that is based on Clifftop where the official event starts Wednesday and the camping and fun starts the Friday before that.

If I was going for the stages, I would look at the schedule and plan for the events/people I wanted to see.

Your dates may be from last year. Their website at fiddlecontest.org lists the starting date as 22 June through 26 June 2021. Something else that is different is remote competition. It sounds like a person may compete from wherever they may be. Let me know if you do this and win as I am close enough to go over and pick up your cash prizes for you. All in the name of helping out during covid of course.

and the answer is: FIRST WEEKEND for the stickerville scene. by the time the contest was happening (second weekend), most everyone had left stickerville. still some sparse jamming in fiddletown and tin town, however.
