2023 Corpus Christi Songwriters Festival

The 2023 Corpus Christi Songwriters Festival, Music Awards and Conference will be held from Feb. 18-19, 2023, 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 on the morning of Saturday, Feb. 18 and running through late night Sunday, Feb. 19.

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.


This year, the #CCSongwritersFestival boasts an impressive line-up of nearly 30 songwriters. The official lineup will be announced soon.
