This annual festival, which has become a favorite for families, youth groups and student ministries takes place Saturday, Sept. 2 with DP’s Celebrity Theater set for three shows (1, 4, and 7 p.m.). The event features a number of top Christian artists including headliners Casting Crowns and Mac Powell from Third Day.

Grammy and Dove Award-winning Casting Crowns will play a number of their hit songs, including music from their The Very Next Thing Tour. Third Day founder Mac Powell performs some of his independent projects prior to Casting Crowns.
