Audience Etiquette

If you wish to attend the festival as an audience member, you should be aware of the following etiquette rules. Each entrant may be competing for trophies and scholarships. Some are competing for National class placement and certain Choral classes are recorded for future adjudication. As a result, these rules are very important to maintain a proper and level field of competition.
