Come one, come all to downtown Smithville, Tennessee, beautiful DeKalb County, and the 45th Annual Smithville Fiddlers' Jamboree and Crafts Festival!  This milestone event will be held Friday, July 1st and Saturday, July 2nd, 2016.  The Festival begins at 9:00 am each day, and continues until the final competition has been awarded.  With over 35  music and dance categories, streets full of hand-made crafts, and over a dozen food booths, there is something for everyone at the Jamboree.  You have to experience it in person...come and see the Jamboree!

The Jamboree is one of those events in life you just have to experience in person...the taste of a funnel cake, the stomp of the dancers on stage, the beauty of the arts, the sounds of old-time and bluegrass music filling the air.  But if you aren't able to make it, DTC will stream it live on their on their website, or hear a live broadcast of the event on WJLE.  We hope you will come us join us, though...come get your slice of down home fun!

The mission of the Smithville Fiddlers' Jamboree and Crafts Festival is to preserve and perpetuate traditional Appalachian and Old-Time music, dance, and crafts.
