Welcome the 2017 Grand River Water Festival! 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. This year’s performers will soon be announced. 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. Our mission is twofold: we use our performers to bring in folks for a day of fantastic music, and in-between bands we have speakers briefly discuss environmental issues related to water quality. We are honored to have the approval and sponsorship of the City of Grand Rapids.
