The festival provides the opportunity for participants to learn from each other and to gain stage experience in a friendly atmosphere. Every performer who enters in this spirit will learn, and be a “winner” in the true sense of the word.

The Festival has been a Powell River tradition for over 65 years offering opportunities to a wide range of performing artists including piano, voice, strings, wind and brass instruments, speech arts, and amateur choirs, bands, string and jazz ensembles.
