With less than a month to go before the 2022 Kemptville Buskerfest, presented by Urbandale Construction, makes its debut in Downtown Kemptville, Ontario on Saturday, May 21. The volunteers of the Organizing Committee have created a fun social media contest called Kemptville’s Got Talent.
The contest is social media-based and encourages people to record themselves performing their own unique talent. The talent can be anything from pet tricks, to singing, and dancing. Contestants are asked to post their video (up to 3 min) on Facebook or Instagram, and tag “Kemptville Buskerfest”. Deadline to submit your video is May 6. Voting will be done by a panel of judges in three categories (age 13 & under, age 19 & under and over 19). Winners will receive “free pizza for a year” from Mr. Mozzarella and an invitation to perform at the Kemptville Buskerfest.
“We felt that this contest would be a perfect way for people to get into the spirit of Buskerfest,” said Sierra Jones, Chair of the Kemptville Buskerfest Organizing Committee. “From the beginning, the committee felt that it was essential to create opportunities to showcase the remarkable talent we are blessed with in our community. This contest is a really fun way to do just that.”
“We loved this idea for a contest! We are really excited for Buskerfest because of how much fun it’s going to be. The contest is a great chance for people to show off their unique talent and win “free pizza for a year” from us. When the organizing committee approached us about this contest, we said ‘Yes!’ immediately”, said Katrina Kassis, Director of Marketing for Mr. Mozzarella.
Since 1997, Mr. Mozzarella company has expanded from its Ontario roots all of the way out to British Columbia. Mr. Mozzarella has been offering customers some of the finest and best-tasting food directly to their door or for pickup. Mr. Mozzarella Kemptville prides itself on being actively involved in their community and offers catering services for any size of event.
