The 2024 Corpus Christi Songwriters Festival, Music Awards and Conference will be held from Feb. 16-18, 2024, and will feature international, national and regionally renowned songwriters during a two-day event, hosting an array of concerts, workshops, and other songwriting-related events — kicking off with an opening night showcase on Friday, Feb. 16, and running through late evening Sunday, Feb. 18.

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

More songwriters will be announced soon.
