The mission of the Federation of Music festivals of Nova Scotia (FMFNS) is to operate an annual amateur competitive music festival which encourages young people to explore various forms and styles of music.

We hope to promote excellence in music, enjoyment of the performing arts and an atmosphere where our youth can learn the benefits of fun and healthy competition. The festival also supports the development of performing arts in our region by providing performance opportunities and awards to emerging musicians.

The FMFNS strives to meet its mission by the hard work of our dedicated volunteers. Funding of the festival comes from donations, endowments and admission fees collected at the venues.
