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 2021.

Our past festivals have included a variety of arts-center 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 triannual 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.
