MayFest Through The Generations…
MayFest, It’s A Big Deal!
MayFest is the end of the year celebration that celebrates academic awards, a spring choir concert, sometimes solo groups, it has at times included orchestra’s or an art show, and most importantly – the selection of a May Queen and King and their court.
It wasn’t always so, as MayFest started back in 1946 with a May Queen and her court but then started including a King in 1986. Also, MayFest started out by being celebrated in the beginning of May. Now, it’s celebrated just before graduation.
There Are Requirements To Be Met When Selecting A MayFest Court
A MayFest Court is not a popularity contest. It is not a favorites list either. A MayFest Court is selected by faculty & staff with high achievements in the following:
- Strong Spiritual values – Christians of the highest character
- High Academic Achievements
- Queenly and Kingly attributes – conducting themselves as a King & Queen (but not above others)
- Follows the ideals of the school
MayFest Continues As A Longtime School Tradition
Today, MayFest happens the eve of graduation, with a May King and Queen selected each year. The court consists of a prince and a princess selected from each class. These have been selected by faculty and staff of Canyonville Christian Academy. Being selected is quite an honor.
