PLEASE NOTE: The Walnut Valley Association has accepted forty (40) registrations for the International Finger Style Guitar Championship. WE ARE CURRENTLY ACCEPTING AN ADDITIONAL THIRTY-FIVE (35) REGISTRATIONS FOR A STAND-BY LIST in case of cancellations or no-shows. You may register On-Line for the Stand-By list, or by calling the office at (620) 221-3250 and pay registration fees with a credit card, or register by completing the registration form and mail with a check, money order or credit card information. You may still sign up at the Festival to be added to the end of the Stand-By list at the Contest Registration Trailer which opens Thursday, September 17, 2020 at 7:00 a.m.
Contests are open to anyone except those who are performing as a billed or paid entertainer or workshop leader at the 2020 National Flat Pick Guitar Championships and those who have been the First Place winner within the past five years–specifically the years 2015 through 2019. However, previous winners may enter and win contests which they have not won within the last five years. For example, the First Place winner of the National Bluegrass Banjo Championship in the last five years may enter and win any or all the other contests.
