ABOUT THE EVENT
Hopefest Music Festival, Inc. is an independent local non-profit 501(c)3 organization whose mission is to strengthen and unite the people of Southern New England by providing a safe, family-focused event that allows people of all ages and denominations to experience the love and grace of God on a deeper level.
We create a non-exclusive event where everyone is welcome. We hand pick artists and speakers to cultivate an atmosphere that not only welcomes God, but allows for the presence of God to show up and move among His people - bringing them closer to Him.
We are located in the northeast corner of Connecticut, only a few minutes away from Mass. and RI. Our first year saw over 200 people attend the event (and an additional 50 volunteers). Last year we doubled our attendance to just over 400 people. We are growing and excited for what God is doing in our little corner of the World.
Bringing communities together to share the Love and Hope of Jesus!
Restoring faith, empowering youth, and worshiping Jesus together.
Maintaining a mission mindset so tickets can be free.
