The annual Red Bridge Fiddle Contest has moved online this year in conjunction with “Americana Fest” on Saturday, June 27 at 1:00 pm.

Participants are able to submit a video of themselves performing two songs by Friday, June 19th, which will be compiled together to show on June 27. The contest is divided into age groups: 10 & Under, 11-18, and 19 & Up. Anyone can participate, right from their home.

The Contest Prizes are supported by the Reading Musical Foundation and will be announced after each age group.

Americana Fest is the project of local musician and entertainer Dave Kline and is “an umbrella festival for the community and visitors, presenting a celebration of music, art, dance, culture, history, craftsmanship and gastronomical excellence”.

The online festival started Memorial Day and continues through June 30. This event is presented by Americana Fest, with support by the Berks County Parks and Recreation Department.
