So You Write on the River is a laid back and interactive music festival that is just as much about the community as it is music. Our mission is to connect songwriters, musicians, friends, and fans through the passion of songwriting and telling stories. The festival is open to all ages. Outdoor activities will be available for varying interests, such as canoe trips on the Flint River and live music every night.
