89th Chester County Old Fiddler’s Picnic

August 12, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm


A Celebration of Music ~ A Reunion of Friends!

Hibernia County Park will come alive as hundreds of musicians and music lovers gather to celebrate the 89th annual Chester County Old Fiddlers’ Picnic.  Despite changing sites and faces, this reunion of friends and music lovers has flourished for decades. Known originally as the “Chester and Delaware Counties’ Old Fiddlers’,” it was the idea of Mr. SL Anderson. The Picnic, coordinated by Christian Sanderson, began at Crystal Springs Park in Parkesburg and later moved to Lenape Park near West Chester. When Lenape Park closed in 1980, Chester County Parks and Recreation offered to sponsor the Picnic at Hibernia County Park.  Mr. Sanderson’s fascination with history and “living records” culminated into a collection housed at the Christian C. Sanderson Museum in Chadds Ford, PA.  Museum representatives will be on site displaying various items.

Gates open at 8:30 am; stage registration opens at 9:00 am.  Admission is free; there is a $5 per car parking charge.  Rain date is Sunday, August 13.
