A Festival of Fine Music 

A fine music festival. That’s how Artistic Director Mark Fewer describes the SweetWater Music Festival. Each year SweetWater showcases the world's best performers providing audiences with unique, intimate and cutting-edge musical experiences that engage the mind, the spirit, and the community.


For over 15 years, this unique annual event has treated audiences from near  and far with three days of performances featuring classical, jazz and contemporary (chamber/orchestral) music. SweetWater is all about reinventing people’s perceptions of these genres.


The Festival is also about engaging the local community. From musicians visiting local schools to displays by local luthiers to a community play along, SweetWater is dedicated to nurturing the next generation of musicians.


SweetWater... music that inspires, challenges and connects.
