4-11 August - 88th Old Fiddler’s Convention - Galax, VA

Cool Breeze Campground



Do you love American Bluegrass & Old Time music? Wonder what the difference is?

This rally which originated as a Virginia Unit event decades ago, is sponsored by Region 3. We rally at

Cool Breeze Campground                                                                                                       outside of Galax. The Convention is held at Felts Park in downtown Galax from the 5th to the 10th. But plan to check in at Cool Breeze on Sunday and depart on Sunday (7 nights). The campground is just off of the blue ridge parkway and lives up to its name (a plus in August!)

One stop shopping…. register for a site and the rally through campsite owner, Robert Sales at (276) 236-0300 or .

The Convention activities happen in the evening (except the final day, Saturday, which is all afternoon and evening). Check out their website to view the schedule.

Daytime rally events include outdoor activities (hike, tubing, flatfoot dancing) and “field trips” to explore local history and Appalachian Music Culture. Most evenings we have on-site performances at the Campground around Happy Hour time. Plenty of free time to do what you do. Find out why so many Airstreamers come back year after year.
