Aug Rally – Cool Breeze

August 2-5

Cool Breeze Campground | 2330 Edmonds Rd | Galax, VA 24333

This event has concluded, see you at the next rally!


NOTE: Our Carolinas Unit August rally is the week prior to the 82nd Annual Old Fiddlers’ Convention on August 7 – 12 so make reservations early so you can extend your stay to include the Fiddlers Convention. The Fiddlers Convention is a WBCCI Region 3 Special Events Rally. The Fiddler’s Convention is six days of continuous entertainment. Entrance to the Fiddlers Convention is not included in that Special Event rally’s fee, so you will need to arrange that separately. If you wish to attend this Region 3 Special Events Rally, visit the Region 3 website.


If you play an instrument, please bring it! We will try to have a sing-a-long with our new member Gary Bradley!
