Schedule of Events

In an effort to ensure everyone's safety at the 2022 Grand Master Fiddler Championship, the Country Music Hall of Fame has instituted the following protocols.  Please read carefully:

 

GMFC Workers, Volunteers, Entertainers, MCs, AND Contestants and Accompanists ONLY

will need to be rapid tested. Rapid testing will be funded by the Museum. Testing will be done on the Crump Terrace (or just inside the door behind contestant registration should weather be an issue) from 7 a.m.–1 p.m. on Saturday and 8 a.m.–1p.m. on Sunday. Once they receive a negative test, they will receive a wristband, which will be a different color each day. If you test positive, you will not be able to participate. Social distancing is not required, masks are not required. 

 

THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO AUDIENCE MEMBERS OR BYSTANDERS - no testing or other protocols are required.
