Most people in our community are aware of the Curwood Festival and all of the entertaining activities that are part of it. They community may not be as aware of all the money that is given back to the community as a result of all those activities. As part of the the wonderful community of Owosso, Curwood Festival Directors have donated $25,000 to build the Heritage Footbridge, purchased 30 picnic tables for area parks, pledged $1,000 annually to the maintenance of the Curwood Castle, given $3,500 to assist with the construction of a Playscape in Bentley Park and gave $1,000 to kickoff the fundraising efforts for a bronze statue of James Oliver Curwood. In 2019, 40 area non-profits, service clubs, schools, and churches raised a total of $70,112 via the fundraising opportunities available through the Festival. As the Curwood Festival has rebounded from the tough years during and after the COVID pandemic, we are excited to announce that we are going to be able to give back even more this year through the 2023 Curwood Grant Opportunity.
