If you arrive early to Chattanooga, please note that dogs are not usually allowed in Coolidge Park. We have special permission for dogs to be in the park for the World Championship (Friday-Sunday). So, please do not go there with your dog(s) until then.

This year we are pleased to have the Humane Educational Society (HES) as our shelter partner. They will have a booth set up at Coolidge Park and will be accepting donations, passing out literature, and will have some dogs looking for forever homes. Be sure and stop by their booth and say hi.

Special Thanks To

Aura Maria Moreno Sierra for all her World Championship design work (World Championship logo, poster, disc, T-Shirts).

Music by local favorite Matt Downer (Old Time Traveler). Check out his website here

Matt Downer, from Chattanooga TN, performs traditional old time music on fiddle, banjo and guitar. Growing up on Sand Mountain, Alabama, he learned to play music from his grandfather and the elder musicians of the area.

A veteran performer, he has played at various venues and festivals including — Rock City, Tivoli, Nightfall, Riverbend and the International Stringband Festival, performing with legendary artists such as — Carolina Chocolate Drops, Pokey Lafarge, Jack Rose, Michael Hurley, and Norman Blake.

His most recent album was recorded without electricity, directly to wax cylinders, on a 1906 Edison Gramophone at the MTSU Center For Popular Music.

A performance by Matt is a trip back in time to the good old days of early American music.

One of the last, best examples of the oral tradition in American folk music.
