Kelowna Kiwanis Festival
We provide an opportunity for amateur and aspiring performers to demonstrate their achievements in music, dance, and speech to their peers and community and have their performances professionally evaluated in a constructive and positive manner.
"Dancing is part of my soul. It makes people happy, and it makes me happy " - John Travolta
Our goal is to ensure that each and every festival participant has a great festival experience that encourages further study and achievement in music, dance, and speech.
Speech, Dance, and Music!
