Message From The Chairman


Chairman’s Message

The Oshawa-Whitby Kiwanis Music Festival will be celebrating it's 52nd year in 2023. Last year we experienced a highly successful virtual festival, and we are very much looking forward to duplicating this success in 2023.

The mission of the Kiwanis Music Festival is to provide our youth and anyone else who has an interest in the arts, access to the adjudication process. This process is extremely valuable as it provides positive and constructive appraisal designed to encourage excellence. Whether or not the participant continues in music in a professional manner, the experience is very beneficial.

The budget for the festival is a large financial undertaking for the Kiwanis Club of Oshawa. We therefore ask for the support of corporate sponsors as well as individuals to keep the costs down and also keep the entry fees to a minimum.Please consider becoming a “Patron of the Festival”.  Your donation will go a long way to ensure that we are able to continue to provide this wonderful opportunity in the future.  We are a registered charity and offer tax receipts for your donations.

I would like to personally thank the Music Festival Board of Directors and staff for their hard work and dedication, our corporate sponsors and other patrons for their financial support and the members of the Oshawa Kiwanis Club for continuing to support the festival.

Finally, on behalf of myself, our staff and our directors I wish to offer a big thank you to all who participate in the festival. 

 We look forward to a very successful 2023 Kiwanis Music Festival.
