Fees


You'll be able to preregister for 2019 shortly. However, it is fine to pay onsite at the Westford Regency in Westford, MA. Just show up when you like, register and pay onsite with cash or check. We'll have a place for you!  There is an ATM in the hotel lobby, and other ATMs nearby. If you are planning to attend Th-Fr or Sa-Su, 2-day tickets will save money. If you are planning on Fr-Sa, it's less expensive to go for the 3-day fee than to pay for these two full days separately.

Fees cover Fiddle Hell events, from workshops, jam sessions, and flash mobs to concerts, dances, and hallway jams. Wristbands are required in the Fiddle Hell area, whether you're attending workshops, attending the many concerts, or just jamming in the hallways. Fees do not cover lodging or food - those are up to you.

Dave's comments on fees: We try to break even at Fiddle Hell. We set fees to cover our costs for instructors and FH staff, hotel function rooms and session rooms, travel and lodging for instructors coming from far away, sound systems and lighting, event insurance, xeroxing and signs, supplies, website hosting and development, and advertising. We offer 10% discounts for seniors (65 or over), young adults (18-25) and kids (17 or under). In addition, there are 10% discounts for preregistration for 4 days, 3 days (either Th Fr Sa or Fr Sa Su), and 2 days (either Th Fr or Sa Su). With our expansion to 4 days, there are more session slots on Friday than there used to be, plus all the new sessions on Thursday.

If you can't quite afford the fee, let Dave know, ideally well before Fiddle Hell. We have a limited amount of scholarship funds to assist musicians. If you're able to contribute to the scholarship fund to help your fellow fiddlers, or to help with Fiddle Hell costs, please do so when you preregister or when you sign in at Fiddle Hell. 

The Saturday night concert and contra dance are included if you've paid for Saturday alone or as part of a multiday package.

Kids (Please Read)


Kids (17 or under) are required to have an accompanying adult (18 or older) at Fiddle Hell with them.  This might be a parent or relative, for example, or an older musical friend. The accompanying adult need not attend all sessions with the kid, but has the responsibility of supervising the kid's participation in Fiddle Hell activities.  An accompanying adult should be registered at Fiddle Hell in one of the musician categories (Adult, Senior, or Young Adult) or as a Non-Musician, and will need to be listed on the kid's registration form.  In other words, you can't just drop off a kid at Fiddle Hell for the day! Thanks for your understanding on this point.
