A Grand Marshal is someone who has had a profound impact on those around them and is a resource for our community through their charity, leadership and ability to make our city and our community a better place.

Who do you know that has made such a change? Looking back some of our former Grand Marshals have been celebrities, quiet leaders, teachers, entrepreneurs, and mentors. The Grand Marshal is selected by submitting a written nomination that describes the effect you feel your nominee has made. These nominations are reviewed by a committee of local dignitaries that will select worthy recipients. Please forward you nomination(s) to the Grand Marshal Committee, PO Box 461, Owosso, MI 48867 or email to curwoodfestival@michonline.net Please include the name and contact information of the person making the nomination.

There's more to the story!  Keep reading!

NEW EPISODE
Season 3 Episode 1: The Chair - 1.24.20

Two years ago Josh Strickland purchased an antique chair that purportedly spent decades in the old Owosso Post Office. Today a photo was shared in the Historic Owosso Facebook group. In the photo, a man is sitting in a similar chair. While the thread attempts to figure out who is pictured and where in Owosso the photo was taken, one user suggests that it may have been in the old post office.
