About Flexile Classic


The first festival, Rockwood Musical Festival, was held on Friday, May 4, 1956 in Stonewall and included professional adjudicators for Piano, Folk Dancing, Singing, and Speech. Classes were held in three different venues simultaneously on the one day. Enough interest and enthusiasm was aroused that in subsequent years more classes were added: Dance, Instrumental, Band and Theatre Arts.

Since then , the towns of Teulon, Warren and Stony Mountain have also taken turns hosting the annual event. In 1957, the name was changed to “Rockwood Music and Speech” until 1977 in which the name was changed to the Rockwood Festival of the Arts as it is today.
