welcome to southeastern manitoba festival

have a look around!

The Southeastern Manitoba Festival offers amateur musicians 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, guitar, instrumental, musical theatre, piano, speech arts, string and vocal categories bringing our participant numbers to over 600! 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.


SEMF would like to thank the many volunteers who help make things run smoothly each year. Volunteer opportunities are listed on our Volunteer page. Thank you to all who contribute to the Southeastern Manitoba Festival, making it a big success! Click here to go to the Volunteers Page.
