I was born and raised in Springville. I lived there for about 25 years and never knew the significance behind the term “Fiddler’s Green.” It’s in the name of one of the town’s nursing homes, a park and now a bluegrass festival that is coming on August 3.

According to The Concord Historical Society, from 1818 until about 1834, Springville was actually known as “Fiddler’s Green” due to the many fiddlers who would play almost nightly in the village green.

If you love bluegrass music, you’re going to want to check out this upcoming festival! On Saturday August 3, The Concord Historical Society will be sponsoring the Fiddler’s Green Country & Bluegrass Festival in downtown Springville. There will be six bands playing six hours of continuous music at both the gazebo in Fiddler’s Green Park and also on the porch of the 1890s Historical Society General Store, known as the Concord Mercantile. There will also be a square dance in the 110-year-old Concord Town Hall.

Plus there will be crafters, food vendors and live demonstrations in Fiddler’s Green Park.  Boy Scout Troop 524 will be sponsoring a Wendel’s Chicken barbecue from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Schedule:

10 a.m. – 6 p.m.: Crafters, food vendors and live demonstrations. Colonial encampment in Fiddler’s Green Park
