How much does it cost to attend the Festival?

After much prayer and consideration, we believe in order to maintain and sustain an impactful festival with your top Christian artists and powerful speakers, we can no longer operate as a free festival. Going forward this year, we are now a ticketed event. There will be more options than previously available with many ticket discount promotions coming. In addition, there are some exciting new options coming which will allow experiencing the festival in much more intimate and behind the scenes ways. This will allow us to continue our mission as a ministry to provide an evangelistic outreach through the festival to reach and see souls radically changed for Christ. Our ministry is also committed to raising awareness about those who are displaced and in need of love and support in Hampton Roads. We appreciate your prayers and continued support of our ministry. To God be the glory, and bless you all. See you at the festival.
