Granite Quarry Civitan Fiddlers' Convention
   
45th Annual
Granite Quarry Civitan Fiddlers' Convention
Saturday  Oct. 1, 2011
 6:30pm - Until

East Rowan High School
US Hwy 52 south of Granite Quarry, NC
(Approx. 5 miles south of Salisbury, NC)


From a small beginning at the Granite Quarry Elementary School Auditorium in 1966, the Granite Quarry Civitan Fiddlers' Convention has grown to utilize the entire campus of East Rowan High School. The forty three year old tradition was the fundraising vision of Mr. James Mathis, then principal of Granite Quarry Elementary.  The vision was inspired by the success of the original Union Grove, NC Fiddlers' Convention in which Mr. Mathis was involved, having previously taught in that school prior to taking the position of principal at Granite Quarry. The event continues to be the major fundraiser for the Granite Quarry Civitans. Contestants from all over the Carolinas and Virginia will compete for $1700 in prize money, trophies and ribbons.  The Granite Quarry Fiddlers' Convention has been compared to conventions at Union Grove and Southside Virginia. Tickets to the event are typically available in mid-August from any club member. In addition to the fantastic bluegrass music, the club also serves up its famous barbeque chicken. The convention is always held on the first Saturday in October.

With a commitment to making positive changes to the event, the Civitans have enlisted the help and guidance of Glenn and Vivian Hopkins, owners of The Fifth String and Co. Rules have been set forth in keeping with other similiar events.  The Granite Quarry Civitans are committed to preserving Bluegrass and Old Time Music and the continuance of an age old tradition.
