Welcome to the 2023 Festival


To all our Cariboo Festival Families and Friends, 

Welcome to the 2023 Festival season! We are excited to be back to our “usual” in performance selves! This season will bring only our vocal and piano disciplines. To our piano entrants, we have very limited spaces for registration – our adjudicator is here for 1 day only; registrants will be first-registered-first-scheduled.


Please make sure to read the 2023 Festival for all applicable rules for entrants.

You can assist our Festival greatly by donating your returnables (bottles, cans, etc) at the Williams Lake Return-It Depot, located at 232 South Mackenzie Ave. All donations will keep our Festival alive! Simply drop off your returnables, let them know you'd like to donate the refund to the Festival, and they will do the rest.

Another way to support us financially is through donation of  gently used trophies, which we can refurbish for a fraction of the cost to purchasing new trophies.
