RiseFest 2019 Dates
Wednesday, July 18, 2018
RiseFest is coming off another record-breaking year with 16,500 attendees over the course of Father’s Day weekend. Looking forward to 2019, the festival is ready to make its first big announcement. RiseFest 2019 will officially move off of Father’s Day weekend to the weekend directly following the holiday. June 21-22 will be the RiseFest dates for the 2019 festival. For the foreseeable future the weekend after Father’s Day every June will be the new timeframe of RiseFest.
“If you're wondering why we’re moving off Father’s Day weekend, it has nothing to do with the weather.” Said President and Founder of RISE Ministries, Rob Roozeboom. “We were informed by our production team, who we have a longstanding relationship with, that they could no longer serve us on Father’s Day weekend due to other commitments. We as a team have decided that we value their relationship immensely and would love to continue to work with them going forward as we have the last decade. This is the reason we are moving to the weekend after Father’s Day.”
RiseFest features well known and up and coming Christian artists. In addition to musical acts, attendees visit seminars and listen to speakers. Children can play games and make crafts in the Kids Zone. Junior and Senior high school aged students can participate in their respective, specially catered youth areas. Those traveling out of town can buy camping spaces for trailers or tents to stay the weekend. RISE Ministries, along with its sponsors, partners, and volunteers seek to make the atmosphere of the event fun and meaningful for all ages.
