WOLFVILLE NS - The annual music festival in the Valley, which opens today, will only run for a week this year due to labour disruptions in schools.

The festival will run from April 17 to April 21 instead of the usual two-week event. It involves competitors of all ages from across Nova Scotia.
No bands will be competing this year. The Stars of the Festival Concerts will be held on April 23 at 2 and 7 p.m.
The labour dispute between the Nova Scotia Teachers Union and the province impacted festival plans. Normally there are approximately 3,000, but the majority are part of school bands or choirs
The festival continues to have its major supporters on board, including Acadia, Rotary Clubs of the Valley, the Canadian Federation of University Women and the Shiretown Singers, who will be giving their farewell performance this year.
