“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 “
