Welcome to the Annapolis Valley Music Festival
Nestled in the beautiful Annapolis Valley, The Annapolis Valley Music Festival is an annual Music Festival that has been held annually in Wolfville, Nova Scotia since 1978.
Annually, the Festival provides musical learning opportunities to over 3000 competitors of all ages from across the province. We provide four levels of competition (Junior, Intermediate, Senior and Open) to students studying piano, voice, string, guitar, woodwinds, brass, fiddle, bands, choirs, mixed ensembles and musical theatre. Additionally, we have added classes for Singer Song Writers and Harpsichord. ration arranges a Provincial Music Festival that provides three levels of live solo competitions for piano, voice, strings, guitar, woodwinds, brass and musical theatre. There are also competitions for small/chamber groups.
Competitions at the local level lead to competitions at the Provincial level which, in turn lead to a National Music Festival. We encourage the exploration of music of all types, including Canadian and Indigenous works.
