To all our Cariboo Festival Families and Friends, 

It is with great saddness that the Cariboo Festival has made the very difficult decision to cancel our 2020 local festival. Our Executive had tried all we could to think outside the box to try and get our local entrants adjudicated in a safe manner, however we have just recieved word from Performing Arts BC, the 2020 Provincial Festival will be cancelled. 

The health and well being of participants and their families, adjudicators, volunteers and members of the public are too important to jeopardize. 

Please stay healthy and safe during this very difficult time and we look forward to the 2021 Festival, 

Cariboo Festival Society

You can assist our Festival greatly by donating your returnables (bottles, cans, etc) at the Williams Lake Return-It Depot, located at 232 South Mackenzie Ave. All donations will keep our Festival alive! Simply drop off your returnables, let them know you'd like to donate the refund to the Festival, and they will do the rest.

Another way to support us financially is through donation of  gently used trophies, which we can refurbish for a fraction of the cost to purchasing new trophies.
