Click on the photo below to enjoy a fun look back through the years of all major award winners going right back to the first ever festival of 1981. Deloraine & Area Border Festival began with one major award, the Rose Bowl, for top performer in the festival. 
In 1990 the major award was renamed the Tudor Bowl as it was realized a Rose Bowl is traditionally awarded in the vocal category. 
In 1992 the vocal Rose Bowl was added as another major award.  The Tudor Bowl would remain a major award for top instrumental performance. 
In 1999 the major award of an Oratorical Cup was added for our ever popular speech arts discipline.

Unfortunately, we are missing some award winners and pictures.  These years are noted in the link below - if you are able to provide names and/or pictures the committee would appreciate hearing from you!  We would also like to know of any participants who "placed" in provincials.
New to Festival?  Go to Information Page Tab and FAQ Tab which have lots of useful information.
  • Discipline Tab will take you to very specific discipline and contact information for Vocal. Piano. Instrumental. Speech Arts. Visual Arts. & Dance
  • We have renamed the HiLites Concert the "Festival Awards Concert" to better reflect the purpose of the concert.  It takes place on the Sunday afternoon following the conclusion of all the Deloraine Border Festival sessions.  Award winners perform the selection for which they were recognized by the adjudicator and receive their award
