The Kiwanis Music Festival has been a firm establishment within the greater St. John's area for over 50 years. For many it is the definitive venue for aspiring musicians (young and seasoned) to showcase their talents on a public stage.

This website has been launched as a showcase of that talent - past and present. We hope that you will find something useful and informative through these pages.
