Quesnel Festival of Performing Arts Society
QFPA is a not-for-profit society, run by a group of volunteers who are devoted to sparking and encouraging a life-long passion for the performing arts. Festival provides an ideal opportunity not only for our aspiring performers, but also for anyone who is a performing arts fan, to take in some truly amazing talent right here in Quesnel.
Our goal continues to be to provide a forum for students of the performing arts–Vocal and Choral, Piano, Dance, and Speech and Dramatic Arts — to perform in public before an experienced, skilled adjudicator, in order to receive training and opportunities above and beyond what they receive in their regular studies, by way of adjudications and constructive critiques.
Every spring, over the six to eight week period of the Festival, participants aged 5 and up receive the opportunity to gain greater knowledge and appreciation for the performing arts. Each discipline presents trophies, cash awards, scholarships, and medals to outstanding participants. Top performing participants within the age range of 10-28 years may further be chosen by their adjudicators to attend the annual Provincial Festival of the Performing Arts.
