About the Vancouver Speech and Drama Festival

The Vancouver Speech and Drama Festival, formerly known as the Kiwanis Fraser Valley Speech Arts and Drama Festival, will be under the management of Kiwanis Fraser Valley Music Festival Society during its 2017 season.

 The festival unexpectedly doubled in size this year and moved to a Vancouver location in 2016 to better serve its participants. Satellite sessions in Langley will be held in 2017 if there is enough demand.

Objectives of the Festival

  • to support and foster drama education through bursaries and scholarships
  • to give participants the benefit of expert criticism from an unbiased adjudicator
  • to help participants acquire self-confidence by performing before an audience
  • to provide performance opportunities for participants both at the festival and in the community throughout the year
