Over $20,000 in prizes! Great BBQ and new fiddle categories! Paid for in part by City of Roswell Lodger's Tax

Welcome to the third annual MainStreet Roswell Fiddle & Griddle Festival. This year the event is scheduled for June 6-7, 2014 in beautiful Roswell, New Mexico.


MainStreet Roswell, Roswell Parks and Recreation Dept., and Roswell Lodger’s Tax are pleased to present the 3rd Annual MainStreet Roswell Fiddle and Griddle Festival June 6-7, 2014. What a wonderful way to start the summer! The Country’s best fiddle players will entertain attendees with some fantastic music while competing for $20,000 in available prize money during the competition on June 6 at 400 N. Main St. in beautiful Roswell, New Mexico. The festival will feature local talent as well as musicians from far and wide. 2013 competitors came from Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Arkansas – as well as Texas and New Mexico. Multiple stages will be set up in the Festival Area for great toe-tapping music.  We will also host the Friday night Fun & Frolic music competition – an informal and fun way to start the competition.

Jacie Sites is again returning to Roswell!  She and her husband, Joe, are lending their expertise to our 3rd annual MainStreet Roswell Fiddle & Griddle Festival as judges.  They will be judging our Fiddler’s competition and may even be sharing their musical talents with us during the weekend. Jacie and Joe will be joined by Megan Lynch Chowning of Nashville to judge the event.

Also featured is our 3rd Annual BBQ Contest with $8,000 available in prize money. The BBQ Contest will begin early Saturday morning. The aroma of smoked meats and savory BBQ sauce will once again permeate the air. The teams of chefs will be more than willing to share their secrets and techniques and are sure to have great hints for your summer backyard BBQ’ing. We will be posting the BBQ judges information shortly.  Check out photos from the 2013 competition.
