On June 24, musicians and educators are partnering up for the Grand River Water Festival.

The day long festival will feature traditional folk, country, bluegrass, Cajun, blues, and world beat music all performed by Michigan musicians.

Between acts, speakers will talk about different environmental issues facing the community and the state, focusing specifically on water.

The free festival is family friendly and will take place starting at noon on June 24 at Riverside Park in Grand Rapids. That's at 2001 Monroe Avenue.

Visitors can buy food and items from environmentally conscious vendors, grab a beer from the beer tents and support the musicians playing.

You can learn more about what speakers have discussed at previous festivals by visiting the festival's website. That's where you will find a schedule of events as soon as it's announced.
