What is The FEST?

The FEST Has EVERYTHING you Need!


The highlight of the summer for almost 40,000 people takes place on Sunday, August 7 in Wickliffe – it’s called The FEST.  This day of faith, family and fun will bring together thousands from across our region for great live music (Newsboys, Michael W. Smith, Matthew West and Lauren Daigle!) along with lots of activities for the kids, great family-friendly food and much more.  The FEST is FREE and open to all.  It takes place at the Center for Pastoral Leadership (28700 Euclid Avenue in Wickliffe).

We have a special opportunity for all Moms. Come to the Marc’s Mom’s Relaxation Station to hear great presentations and receive helpful information and timely tips to care for your home and family. We also have over 150,000 samples and giveaways for you. Dads can enjoy the day in the Dad’s Den, where you can expect good information on how to be a man of God and a strong faith leader in your family and community. All the guys will go home with some great  giveaways.
