We are a board-governed, non-profit (and registered charity) organization. The Kiwanis Music Festival Society of Kelowna oversees all aspects of the Festival. Membership in the society is open to the public. Festival Executive positions are elected from the membership.
We believe that it is only through building strong community partnerships and being strategically focused that we will successfully grow the Festival and be able to continue to provide a one-of-a-kind community experience, which will meet with the increasing demand for the Kelowna Kiwanis Festival in the community.
We rely on volunteers, donations, and sponsors to achieve our mission while ensuring that each performer has a wonderful festival experience that encourages further study in their discipline.
The Kelowna Kiwanis Festival
