The old-time Smithville Fiddlers' Jamboree and Crafts Festival is a DeKalb County tradition that draws musicians, craft artists, and spectators to the Smithville Square each summer around the Independance Day weekend. The original idea for the country music festival came from Congressman Joe L. Evins and soon after, the festival became a broader tribute to Appalachian art and culture.
