Registration for the Morden Festival of the Arts takes place in late January. Piano and Strings registrations are done through the students' private music teachers. Registration forms are available at all local schools, as well as the Morden South Central Regional Library and on this website. There is a small fee for each entry to help cover the cost of adjudicator fees.
Announcements regarding Festival dates, locations and registration deadlines will appear in the local school newsletters as well as in local newspapers and on this website.
A major goal of the Morden Festival of the Arts is to encourage high levels of participation. As part of this encouragement, we try to keep our entry fees as low as possible.
