2020 Event Cancellation Notice

Folk music has always been a way to express challenging times, and we are hoping to get through the next few months with a renewed sense of unity and strength.   

What we know about Topanga Banjo Fiddle Contest and Folk Festival 2020 at this point is our event cannot take place on May 17th

Ticket sales were final, however, your 2020 tickets and contestant fees will be valid at Topanga Banjo Fiddle Contest and Folk Festival 2021.  Please be sure to hold on to your tickets, or your receipt so we may re-issue you a new ticket, or contest entree confirmation, when 2021 tickets go on sale.


If you choose not to hold on to your tickets for next year, your donation would be greatly appreciated.  TBFC is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, and 100% of whatever money TBFC can recover will be used to pay for expenses that have already been incurred.
