Chopin Youth Piano Competition

This year marks 20 years of the Chopin Youth Piano Competition at Polish Fest. A special exhibit featuring highlights of the past 20 years of the Chopin piano competition is located in the cultural tent north of Main Gate.

Chopin Youth Piano Competition is our yearly contest that gives talented piano students from around the area a chance to show off their skills. There is a Junior Division (Ages 10-14) and Senior Division (Ages 15-18) giving students of all ages a chance to compete. The top four finishers in each division are given a cash prize! If you are a piano teacher interested in challenging your advanced students or an interested student you are encouraged to enter this event. Please sign up today!
