The 52nd Annual Smithville Fiddlers’ Jamboree and Crafts Festival is coming Friday, June 30th and Saturday, July 1st to downtown Smithville, Tennessee. Each day begins at 9am with over 35 music and dance categories, streets full of hand-made crafts, and food booths galore. Come and see for yourself why this FREE family-friendly festival has been named the official Jamboree & Crafts Festival of the State of Tennessee.
The old-time Fiddlers’ Jamboree is a DeKalb County tradition that draws musicians, craft artists, and spectators to the Smithville Square each summer around the Independence Day weekend. Over time, the festival became a broader tribute to Appalachian art and culture. Thousands of tourists visit the festival every year, along with television viewers this year via DTC-TV and blanket coverage by WJLE AM 1480/FM 101.7 with a LIVE audio Stream at www.wjle.com
