Fiddle Fest Returns with New Name, New Location

by Berks Fiddle Fest

May 06, 2021

We are excited to announce that there will be a live and In-person Fiddle Fest this year.

Mark your calendars for Sunday Sept 19th, 2021 and plan on attending the Berks Fiddle Fest at Bear Creek Mountain Resort, our new home.

We are moving the Fiddle Fest out of Lyons for several reasons. Last Year we were cancelled due to COVID 19. Also last year, the creek at the Lyons Park received major damage due to the heavy rains and the park will not be usable for the Fiddle Fest again this year and maybe even next year and the core Planning Team of the Fiddle Fest feel the event is too important to Berks County to wait another year or two before having another Festival.

Other reasons include that the Volunteer Staffing has aged and also decreased and the set-up, execution, and tear-down has been very challenging the past several years.  Also, we were outgrowing that cozy little park. The Lyons Park has been a great home for us, as we crowed together in the shade, for the past 38 years and We are grateful to the Lyons Borough Council and Community for hosting us all of those years.

We are aware that moving the Fiddle Festival means it will ‘feel’ a little different, as does moving any event and we are making every attempt to keep the Festival as familiar as we can.  We are looking forward to gathering at Bear Creek Mountain Resort with plenty of Lawn Chair seating, more room for the Jammers, a new Crafter area, and plenty of parking.

A new home, a new name, but the same ‘feel!’  We invite you to the Berks Fiddle Fest on Sunday, Sept 19th at Bear Creek Mountain Resort, 101 Doe Mountain Ln, Macungie, PA 18062.
