The Rainy River District festival of the Performing Arts is looking forward to our first ever ONLINE “Spirit of the Festival Showcase” in the spring of 2021. This will provide an opportunity for local students of the performing arts to showcase their hard work and to bring the joy of music and the arts to our community during these difficult times. This change in format was adopted by the Festival Committee using feedback received from a survey in November and in consideration of the current public health restrictions affecting our community. We anticipate returning to our traditional competitive festival format in 2022.
We hope that this year’s Festival will be a fun and rewarding experience for all participants! Here are a few things to note for 2021:
– There are NO fees being charged to enter the festival this year.
– There will be no adjudication of performances.
– There will be no presentation of awards, scholarships or bursaries.
– Performances must be video recorded and submitted by April 7 2021. Only original, unedited videos will be accepted.
Please keep checking back to our website or Facebook page for more details and guidelines regarding the video submissions.
