Welcome to the Port Colborne Festival of the Arts web site.

We are an incorporated, non-profit, registered charitable organization whose purpose is to develop and maintain high standards in various facets of the arts in the community and to provide for individual competition in various disciplines; competition among school groups of similar age and experience; competition among dance groups of similar age and experience; and an opportunity for performance among church and community choirs.

The Board of Directors is a diverse group of volunteers comprised of individuals representing private music teachers, local school boards, choral groups, private dance studios and interested community citizens. Each committee within the Board meets to help organize our annual Festival of the Arts to be held each spring.

We offer classes in the following disciplines: Piano, Voice, Individual Verse Speaking, Elementary & Secondary School Choirs, Choral Speaking and Bands, Church & Community Choirs & Bands, Instrumental Solo, Dance, Student Composition. Highly qualified adjudicators have been hired for each facet of this year’s event. Please check out a specific Syllabus for details as well as all applicable Rules & Regulations.
