Santa Fe RiverFest Needs Songwriters

Jan 29, 2016 11:56PM

The sixth annual Santa Fe RiverFest, to be held April 17 at Rum 138, west of High Springs, is taking applications from songwriters that want to share their musical skills and help raise money for a good cause: our drinking water. Songwriters should submit a mp3 about the Santa Re River no later than March 1 to [email protected].


Judges will look for originality, quality of lyrics, melody and performance. Finalists will take the stage during the afternoon and have an opportunity to win a $300 first place prize. Each finalist will also receive a professional video of their performance, which also will be placed on YouTube.


Our Santa Fe River, Inc. (OSFR), a nonprofit organization working to protect the aquifer, springs and waters in this area, is sponsoring the songwriting contest and music festival, hosted by WKTK broadcast personality Storm Roberts, with a band, family activities, food and drinks and first-rate silent auction gifts.


Location: corner of CR 138 and Rum Island Terrace. For more information, call Merrillee Malwitz-Jipson at 386-243-0322 or visit
