In you are interested in maintaining the Performing Arts in Kamloops, please join us. Everyone is welcome
At the start of 2015 the KFPA submitted our Host Hotel's name for consideration of an award given to those businesses who support the Arts. The Accent Inn's has supported the KFPA for over 15 years in supplying us with office space for the festival as well as rooms for our adjudicators and participants to each festival. At the Mayor's Gala in January, 2016 - we succeeded in our nomination!
The Festival would greatly benefit from a knowledgeable Marketing person to help raise funds and get advertising for our program.
We have run the festival in Kamloops for the past 83 years - let's not let it cease to be due to apathy from our community. We need your help now please. Contact Carol Edwards @ 250-372-2254 or Rita Winkler @ 250-828-0558 to volunteer your time to the festival.
Donate to the KFPA either as a scholarship (state discipline preference) or general fund donation. Donating through CanadaHelps is secure, safe and you are able to print off your Tax receipt immediately
Remember - you can build up your "User-Points or "Air-Miles" Points with any festival payments or donations made with a credit card that gives you user-points.
A limited number of printed syllabus will be available from the Festival for a fee of $5.00 each. To obtain a copy contact Sue Reedman ( 250-372-9339 ) or Carol Edwards( 250-372-2254). The syllabus (rules for our festival, prices for entries in every discipline and registration instructions) is available for downloading from this site as well. Scroll down left menu for Syllabus and then each subheading for the disciplines interesting you.
If you have any questions please contact: the discipline representative or the Festival Administrator - Sue Reedman
