The 2020 Festival of Faith & Writing will take place April 16-18 on the campus of Calvin University in Grand Rapids, Michigan. This biennial gathering brings together readers—many of whom are also writers—in a lively weekend of conversations, readings, concerts, workshops, film screenings, and more.
Registration covers access to all official Festival events, including evening keynotes, concerts, and film screenings. We have an exceptional group of speakers joining us for our 30th anniversary Festival; to view the full list of speakers, click here.

If we hit the fire code limit of registrants, we cannot legally admit more attendees and will have to turn you away. If, however, we are able to offer on-site registration, rates will start at $335. We strongly discourage waiting to attempt a walk-up registration due to unlikely availability and increased price. We want you to join us; please register ahead of the deadline: March 16, 2020 or when we reach capacity!
We work hard to make Festival one of the most affordable events of its kind. If the cost of registration is prohibitive, we would love to have you apply for one of our Festival Scholarships.
*Calvin University faculty, staff, and students may qualify for additional funding; contact us for more information.
