Peace River North Festival

After months of hard work and practice, hundreds of performing artists are ready to take the stage at the North Peace Cultural Centre for the 2013 Peace River North Festival.  Professional adjudicators will be arriving in Fort St. John from Vancouver, Edmonton and Quesnel to evaluate, encourage and inspire the musicians, singers and dancers of all ages and levels; from children whose feet don’t quite reach the floor when they sit at the piano, to dancers in their teens who are already seasoned veterans of many festivals.

All sessions are open to the public we encourage Fort St. John to come out and support these young performers, see what kind of talent we have in our community and welcome visiting bands and dance troupes from Dawson Creek, Fort Nelson and Quesnel.
