2023 WCB Convention October 26-28
Showcase of Talent
Spots are now open for those with talent to share! Remember that all acts must be family friendly and at or under 4 minutes. First come, first served, with a limit of 15 acts (at the discretion of the coordinators.) Preference may be given for those who perform their talent live — playing piano or guitar, singing, dancing, etc. — rather than with a pre-recorded track. Sign up early! Final deadline will be Sunday, October 15, unless spaces fill up earlier. For more details check the info page. The latest posts are added to the bottom of the page.
