Old Time on the Onion Fiddler's Gathering

When: Fri., July 14, 12 p.m., Sat., July 15 and Sun., July 16 2017

If you’re in the Plainfield area this weekend, you may hear traditional tunes echoing about. Those ear-catching notes come courtesy of musicians at the inaugural Old Time on the Onion. Presented by the Summit School of Traditional Music & Culture, this gathering of fiddlers and other acoustic players emulates Appalachian bow-and-string conventions. Songsters and their families tune up their instruments for three days of jamming at the picturesque Onion River Campground. Workshops, social time, camping and outdoor adventures — think fishing, swimming, hiking, picnicking and lawn games — are sure to keep music lovers picking and grinning all weekend long.

Price: $15-40; free for kids 18 and under; $30 for hookups.
