2015 Cultural Arts Festival

After much date juggling, we’ve nailed down the Cultural Arts Festival for this year.  It will be held on Sunday, May 3 from 1pm – 4pm at Siren School.  Mark your calendars!

There are two changes to the contest this year.

  • Registration:  Members are required to register for ALL areas.  In the past this was not required for photography or arts & crafts.  So please note that if you are going to enter anything at all in the Cultural Arts Festival, you must register.
  • Act in a Sack: This is a new category in Drama that sounds like a lot of fun!  A team of 2 to 4 youth will receive a sack of props and a situation (or you can create your own).  The team has 10 minutes to organize a 10-15 minute act or play.  Look for more information in the Drama Contest section of the registration packet below.

Registration deadline is Monday, April 13, 2015 at 7pm (at the Leaders’ meeting).  Registrations may be emailed to, dropped off at the office, or mailed as long as we receive them by the deadline.
