We endeavour to provide a positive environment where young performers are encouraged to grow and perform.

The purpose of the Penticton Kiwanis Music, Dance and Speech Arts Festival is to complement and enhance the learning/teaching process. It provides an opportunity for students to perform their music, speech arts and dance achievements and to receive a constructive, meaningful evaluation of their performances. In doing so, the Festival aims to foster and promote a lifelong interest and appreciation for music, dance and speech arts. 


In order to fulfill it's purpose the Festival:

            establishes rules and categories for performance by consulting with teachers and provincial/national
            music festival organizations.
            engages the services of professional adjudicators to provide constructive verbal and written critique    
            with competitive ranking.

            presents certificates, medallions, trophies, scholarships and awards to competitors based on
            adjudicated results.

            provides a stepping stone to provincial and national competition

            presents Highlights Concerts for outstanding performances.
