$5 AT THE DOOR

The Corpus Christi Songwriters is excited to host our 1st Annual Corpus Christi Songwriters Festival - featuring national, regionally and locally renowned songwriters during a three-day event, hosting an array of concerts, song swaps, workshops, and other songwriting-related events — kicking off on Friday, Feb. 16 and running through Sunday, Feb. 18.

Events will simultaneously take place in both downtown Corpus Christi and in town, giving festival-goers, and visiting songwriters alike, the opportunity to see all our beautiful city has to offer.

Thanks to a partnership with Aloft Corpus Christi, we will be offering an All-Inclusive Package, with a 2-night stay at the brand new hotel, plus access to all Festival-related events, brunches, mixers, and work shop! More information on this exciting opportunity COMING Jan. 16!

FESTIVAL
Songwriters such as Susan Gibson, George Ensle, Claude Butch Morgan, Matt Hole, Ty Dietz, Steven James & The Jaded, Timothy "Doc" Carter & Matt Grundy (and over 20 more to be announced soon) will perform during events on Friday, Saturday, and an all-day concert on Sunday, Feb. 18 - culminating that night with a special "In The Rounds", open to the public, with featured songwriter George Ensle! 

AWARDS CEREMONY BRUNCH
On Sunday, Feb. 18, an Awards Ceremony Brunch will be held at the Aloft Corpus Christi, with awards given to local and regional songwriters and performers nominated by our community and CCSW Board of Directors (who will not be eligible for nominations), and judged by a non-partial / outside Jury.

A Best of Fest Award will also be given to ONE Songwriter, to be awarded after the event. 
SONGWRITING WORKSHOP
On Saturday afternoon, Feb. 17, songwriter Matt Grundy will be hosting a songwriting workshop on the craft. An After-Party Song Swap will take place afterwards.
