What’s it all about?
This National Fiddling Day "bill" was last introduced in the 41st Parliament, 2nd Session, which ended in August 2015. This bill has received Royal Assent and is now law. This enactment designates the third Saturday in May in each and every year as “National Fiddling Day!"
According to Senator Elizabeth Hubley in May 2016, "I envisioned National Fiddling Day to be a whole day of celebration where fiddlers share their talent, lifting spirits and making people happy. Like Canada, it [fiddling] embraces and accommodates many different styles and traditions, allowing each to thrive and flourish — even while we create an entirely new sound.”
