MISSION STATEMENT  ​​​​​​
The Deloraine Border Festival presents an opportunity for students in Southwest Manitoba to participate in a variety of artistic endeavours,
​a chance to perform, to learn and enjoy. 
Each spring, we listen and watch with joy and wonder as the artistic talent
that blooms and grows in our communities is shared with others at our festival. 
Thanks to all who make it happen.

It is with heavy hearts the committee wishes to announce we are
CANCELLING
the
2020 Deloraine Border Festival  
We thank you for your understanding and hope you will be with us next year
as we celebrate our 40th festival. 
Please take precautions and stay healthy.  
THE FESTIVAL COMMITTEE LOVES OUR GENEROUS COMMUNITY!!

We wish to acknowledge our annual festival supporters who have instructed us to keep 2020 donations submitted and many have thoughtfully advised they are prepared to donate again next year - wow!

Graciously, many parents requested entry fees be kept as a donation. 
This generous goodwill has made the overwhelming task of cancelling our anniversay festival much easier on the head and more importantly... the heart.  

​THANK YOU
We will Celebrate Our 40th Festival Year in 2021

Watch for special events planned in celebration of 40 years!
Congratulations and many thanks to Jordyn Schultz for designing our 40th Anniversary Logo!
