“Dear Festival participants, patrons, sponsors and friends, 

With a heavy heart we must announce our decision to cancel the 2021 Southeastern Manitoba Festival. We have deliberated over our possible options and find the uncertainty of future cancellations to be cost and time prohibitive. We will look forward now to 2022 for a great Festival with much anticipation and hope for a wonderful celebration of the arts at that time. Please continue to enjoy your studies and studios, enriching your life and the lives of those around you.

Sincerely, Sharon Guenther, SEMF President “

welcome to southeastern manitoba festival

have a look around!

The Southeastern Manitoba Festival offers amateur musicians, dancers and speech performers from across the region the opportunity to perform, attend workshops, compete for awards, and be adjudicated by experts. Each year the Festival hosts hundreds of performances in choral, dance, guitar, instrumental, musical theatre, piano, speech arts, string and vocal categories bringing our participant numbers to over 3,000! The Festival runs for about 22 days and includes Awards Nights as well as several Highlights Evenings which are also presented each year, showcasing some outstanding performers.  The Southeastern Stars Gala Celebration is a particular highlight where each trophy winner is invited to perform and receive their trophy, often presented by the donors.
