To be consistent and true to the Festival objectives and spirit, only authentic Croatian folklore songs and dances are permitted at the festival performance. Groups that do not adhere to this rule are subject to a $500 fine by the Canadian-Croatian Folklore Federation (East).
We ask that your group stays within the time limit of 12 minutes for your performance, which includes both the entrance and exit to the stage. Groups that do not adhere to this requirement will be fined.
We ask that each group designate a member of their organization to watch over their personal belongings during the performance. The Croatian National Home, Canadian-Croatian Folklore Federation (East) and FirstOntario Concert Hall are not responsible for lost or damaged items.
Each group will be provided a liaison for the duration of the concert festival. This individual will be available to answer any questions the group may have and keep the group well informed of all aspects of the Festival weekend. This individual will guide the group to their change room and lead the group to the stage.
FirstOntario Concert Hall only permits smoking or drinking of alcoholic beverages in designated areas. Violators of this rule do so at their own risk.
