Smithville Fiddlers' Jamboree 2020
WCTE to Broadcast and Stream Smithville Fiddlers’ Jamboree Virtual Competition 2020 & Jamboree Marathon
WCTE PBS will premiere the Smithville Fiddlers’ Jamboree Virtual Competition on-air and via stream at wcte.org on Saturday, July 4 at 5 pm. Due to COVID-19, the board members of the Smithville Fiddlers’ Jamboree voted to suspend the 49th Annual Smithville Jamboree Crafts & Arts Festival in downtown Smithville July 3 & 4 this year and do a virtual competition instead.
WCTE will also be airing a Jamboree Marathon produced by WCTE Senior Producer, Craig Gray from noon to 5:00 pm and 8:00 pm to midnight on Friday, July 3 and 10:00 am on Saturday, July 4. The marathon will air throughout the day and in the evenings around other high-profile programming. The marathon will feature Smithville Fiddlers’ Jamboree moments from the vault that were shot many years ago.
