Roethke Festival Events

SVSU is pleased to partner with various community organizations, along with past funding provided by the Michigan Humanities Council, to support the five-day triannual Roethke Poetry and Arts Festival. Our next Festival is tentatively scheduled for March 2022.

Our past festivals have included a variety of arts-centered programming, particularly centered on the written and spoken word. Past events have included poetry readings, contests, and slams; choral and jazz concerts; interactive lectures and book discussions; and tours of the Roethke House in Saginaw.

Each triennial festival allows our region to celebrate Theodore Roethke, Saginaw’s native poet; the winners of the poetry prize; and all the people in the Great Lakes Bay region who value the power of the written word.
