The Cariboo Festival Society is pleased to announce that plans are well underway for the 2017 Cariboo Festival.

The festival will run April 18 to 28.

The 2017 syllabus is available for viewing on the festival website at www.cariboofestival.ca.

On-line registration will be available in the near future. Check the website for details.

The goal of the Cariboo Festival Society is to encourage the development of the arts within the community of Williams Lake and surrounding area.

Through a month-long spring festival, the Cariboo Festival Society promotes educational and artistic growth in music-voice, piano, and a variety of instruments and in speech arts.

Participants sign up for individual or group classes through an on-line registration process and then perform their selection in front of an audience as well as an adjudicator for that discipline.

The adjudicator provides written feedback for every participant as well as a mark, and spends time speaking with each “class,” providing general feedback and as much individualized feedback as possible.

Individual marks are never announced, however, are recorded on the participants’ marking sheet. The festival committee seeks out and hires positive adjudicators, who are in tune with the values of positive reinforcement, celebration of the arts and how to improve one’s skills.

The Cariboo Festival Society is a non-profit organization which is registered under the British Columbia Society Act, affiliated with Performing Arts BC, and a member of the Williams Lake Community Arts Council. The society is run by dedicated and caring volunteers and is generously supported by sponsors within the community of Williams Lake and the surrounding area. New volunteers and award sponsors are always welcome!
