It is with deep regret that the Quesnel Festival of the Performing Arts informs our community and festival participants that we will not be going forward with our 39th Annual Festival. Our Dance, Vocal and Choral, Piano, Speech and Dramatic Arts Festivals are officially cancelled for the 2021-2022 season. We have set a new mandate and hope to re-establish our Board in order to continue to provide opportunities for our performers in the future. Our next meeting has been scheduled for November 30th at 6 pm at the Quesnel and District Arts and Recreation Centre. We invite anyone interested in promoting and fostering performing arts in Quesnel to attend. We are deeply saddened by this announcement and look forward to positive and productive ideas and attitudes to help us move forward. All future announcements will be posted to our website and Facebook page
QFPA Board Members
Thank you to all who have reached out since our last post. Your comments, support and all-around kind words are greatly appreciated.
Many have been asking why we came to the decision to cancel all 2021/22 QFPA Festivals.
Although many of you have assumed the correct reasons, we wanted to officially send out the information to everyone.
The unpredictability of where Covid-19 is headed, ongoing restrictions and regulations, safety concerns, securing a suitable venue, vacant committee and board positions and overall lack of volunteers, forced us to pull back.
We hope that taking the time to re-establish the board will allow us to return stronger than ever! Performing Arts promotes creativity, self-discovery and expression and is an essential part of our community. If you would like to be a part of fostering the Arts in Quesnel, please plan to attend our next meeting on November 30th at 6pm at the Quesnel and District Arts and Recreation Centre.
The goal is to provide a positive and productive forum where we can answer questions, share challenges and concerns but above all else – collectively think of ways to move forward. We hope to see you there.
Please submit all questions or comments to our email at firstname.lastname@example.org
All questions will be formally addressed at the meeting and we will post public updates on our website and Facebook page.
Sincerely, QFPA Board Members
