History of RiverSong
The first RiverSong festival launched in 2009. It was the brainchild of a small group of graduates of the Community Area Leadership Program funded by the Blandin Foundation in 2006. The organization was formed in 2007 and is currently operating as a non-profit organization with their own 501(c)(3) non-profit status. Seeing an opportunity to leverage Hutchinson’s natural, historic and artistic resources, the group formed an action committee and recruited dozen’s of volunteers who wanted to expand Hutchinson’s growing reputation as an arts destination. RiverSong is currently a member group of the Hutchinson Center for the Arts.View Past Performers
