PATRONS

Become a Patron of Opelika Songwriters Festival

Are you a music fan? Are you a fan of OSF?

For three days in May, the downtown community of Opelika comes alive with a  celebration of music, and the creativity of songwriting.  The streets, distilleries, cafes, and B&B of Historic Opelika become a gathering place for songwriters and music fans from Alabama and around the country.   This is the place that will display the art of songwriting at its very best.

It takes a community to make this festival a reality. In addition to ticket sales, it takes the generosity of individual Patrons and business sponsors like you to make this festival a reality.
