2 DAYS OF AWESOME.
AT WILLOWSONG WE EMBRACE DIVERSITY OF CULTURE, ARTS AND HUMANITY. WE AIM TO CREATE AND MAINTAIN A HARMONIOUS SPACE WHICH COUPLES SUSTAINABLE FOOD PRODUCTION AND EDUCATION WITH A COMMUNITY-CENTERED HAVEN FOR MUSIC AND THE ARTS. BY THESE MEANS WE HOPE TO CULTIVATE AN ENVIRONMENT WHICH STRENGTHENS THE POSITIVE ENERGY THAT FLOWS THROUGH US ALL.
Willowsong Music Festival was founded in 2017 by Eric and Jo Raby. Located only 44 miles from Grand Rapids in Sidney MI, Willowsong takes place the last weekend prior to Labor Day weekend every summer.
What to look forward to:
16 Amazing Bands/Artists
James Community Bonfire (no other fires allowed onsite, but trust us this one is sufficient)
Camping on site
Helpful list of items to pack:
Closed toe shoes (Makes the terrain easier to traverse)
Tarp to put under tent (protect from moisture or tent punctures)
Water Bottle (reﬁll stations available on festival grounds)
Cash (Some vendors, including Willowsong, accept card but some may not)
We will have a tent set up where information will be available on organic gardening, composting etc. we talk about sustainability, digging in the dirt and growing what we eat! Plants and fresh flowers will be available for purchase including succulent starts, some perennial ﬂower transplants and fresh bouquets. Swaps are welcome and encouraged as well, if you have something you would like to bring to trade we love to exchange and learn more about your favorite plants. Come chat with us about how we can all help to become more sustainable and friendly to our mother earth.
Here is the 2019 festival grounds map to give you any idea of the layout!
All parking and camping is directly onsite so come prepared to stay a spell!
KEEP OUR HOME GREEN & CLEAN
At Willowsong we strive to be a zero waste event. This is not only your festival grounds but also our home so we kindly ask that you treat it as such and reduce, reuse, recycle. There are appropriate receptacles around the property for recycling and compost and we ask that you take any trash you produce with you.
