Canadian Fiddling Day 2019

Saturday May 18th at Topaz Park

Join us for the Canadian Fiddling Day Jam at the Victoria Highland Games and Celtic Festival starting at 11:00 am.

The jam will take place this year to the right of the main stage near the Clan tents on the south side of the park (further away from the practicing pipe bands).

Fiddlers and others wishing to participate in the jam will receive FREE entrance into the games to play … but, first you must email Tony at alambert@pacificcoast.net to have your name added to the list.  Free entrance will be through the north (Finlayson St.) gate to Topaz Park. 

This year’s jam will be led by the renowned Ivonne Hernandez and  VFS Member Tony Lambert.

Please try to learn Canada’s Fiddling Day Two-step (or “Fiddle Bill” – referring to the passage of the Fiddling Day bill through parliament). It has a National Anthem feel to it and will be our final tune.
