Ten Years. Coming Soon. Be Involved.

ten-saiThanks to all for a great 2016! We are already working hard on making next year an even more amazing spectacle. Want to be part of our 10th anniversary celebrations? For international groups, we have a yearly deadline of October 20th (read the Perform at WMDF pages, going through the numbered sections 1 to 4 to get full application information). For making suggestions to improve our event check our tenth anniversary page. Or, for sponsoring suggestions, check out our Deals and Sponsor pages. The picture here combines “Sai”, the shortened name of our festival, with a Japanese kanji character read as “ten”. The kanji has many meanings, including “develop” and “expand”. “Saiten” (using different Japanese characters) is also one way of saying “festival”. So, all at once this image represents the tenth year of WMDF, the whole idea of events, and our goal to make next year even better!
