Nestled in the heart of the historic Little Belt silver mining valley is a “Treasure State” treasure. The friendly community of Monarch is home to the Montana Fiddle Camp. During the first two weeks in June, this picturesque setting rings with laughter and the sweet sound of fiddle music, blended with big blue skies, crystal clear water, and the fresh aroma of mountain spruce. Montana Fiddle Camp brings together a dazzling array of instructors who offer classes and workshops in an intimate and beautiful setting. We offer fiddle, guitar, mandolin, banjo, bass, cello, and contra dancing. Nightly concerts, given by our instructors, are the highlight of the fiddle camp experience.


Montana Fiddle Camp is a division of Montana State Oldtime Fiddlers Association, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization.
