Annual World Championship Fiddlers Festival
Houston County Courier - June 2008
The Crockett Area Chamber of Commerce has begun making plans for the 72nd Annual World Championship Fiddlers Festival to be held June 13th and 14th.
According to events chairman Wayne Mask, this year’s event will include the Regional Championship Steak Cook-off, Antique Tractor show and parade, craft and flea market.
The parade will include many of the antique tractors and will begin in Davy Crockett Memorial Park about 11:30 a.m. on June 14 and travel around the square and return to the Crockett Civic Center where entries will remain on display throughout the event.
The Regional Championship Steak Cook-off attracted 16 teams in 2007 who cooked 550 Angus Pride steaks for consideration by the judges.
Pre-sale tickets for the steak dinner can be purchased for $15 and are available from any chamber board member or at the chamber office in the civic center complex.
Frank Minton says interest in the steak cook-off is off to a good start and they expect an even greater number of team entries this year.
In conjunction, with the Fiddlers Festival held in the civic center, a flea market and craft show will be held on the civic center lawn or in the Porth Ag Arena.
Booths will be available to vendors for $25.
