2020 FESTIVAL

As a result of major theatre renovations at the Banff Centre the Festival will not take place in 2020. We look forward to continuing the great history of the Canadian Rocky Mountain Festival as the jewel of Canadian festivals once the theatre renovations have taken place. Check the web page next year for up dated information.

2019 FESTIVAL VERY SUCCESSFUL

The 2019 festival was another great event. From all accounts every part of the festival was successful. We received very positive reports on the clinic work done by the facilitators. Both the Festival and Showcase Concerts were a great success. The new Special Sessions were really popular and very well received. The TPDP program has continued to be a great success. Everything about the festival was well received.  Thank you to all who attended!
