2013 GraceFest AV
GraceFest AV returns for its sixth year building on a new annual tradition for Antelope Valley residents, Friday, September 20th & Saturday, September 21st. GraceFest AV is a Christian music festival celebrating the gospel of Jesus Christ! He is the star of the show, so let’s unite together as one in worship and praise for what He has done for us all! We invite you to come out and join the fun, excitement and relaxation of being with family and community in the warm early fall of the Antelope Valley.
GraceFest AV presents outstanding Christian merchants and worldwide compassion ministries. The enormously popular kid’s area will return providing supervised fun, games and activities for the kids. The Prayer Tent offers many exciting speakers and ministries presenting their programs and messages. The Prayer Chapel is built onsite to offer a quiet place of peace and prayer. Pastors are available for prayer needs and support.
The Prayer Wall is a special place located in the chapel for those who’d like to post a prayer request. These prayer requests are prayed for up to 4 weeks after the event. The new Youth Performance stage is located in the kid’s area on the backside of the hill. Local youth groups and young Christian artists will perform from 11:30am to 4:30pm. All national artists will meet and greet their fans at their merchandise tables.
