Grand River Water Festival
Save the Date - Saturday, June 22, 2019
Riverside Park, 2001 Monroe Ave., Grand Rapids MI
Thanks to long-term community support and involvement, we are celebrating our 10th annual Grand River Water Festival in 2019. We are celebrating this landmark event with a two-day festival with the addition of a Grand Dragon Boat Race on Sunday in addition to our lineup of artists and speakers. We have evolved as an organization in our outreach and in addition to the festival we have added after-school music and dance programming, and an art program geared towards raising awareness of water quality issues.
The festival is a free-of-charge, day long Music driven Environmental Festival featuring Traditional Folk, Country, Bluegrass, Cajun, Blues and World Beat music, performed by Michigan musicians.
We are able to use music and activities to draw together diverse groups of folks from our West Michigan community, who are then educated on water quality issues by Speakers from diverse environmental groups in-between bands.
There are opportunities to be further educated on environmental organizations, to activate and volunteer to worthy environmental causes, to purchase quality environmentally-conscious goods and food from our vendors, and to support the musicians at the merchandise booth.
It is a holistic music festival on all levels, with a great deal of heart.
