Faith & Family Night

Wednesday, September 14, 2022 6:30PM - 9:00PM

Formerly the Appletime Gospel Sing, we've reformatted Opening Night of the Festival into Faith & Family Night! Opening on the Appletime Stage with family-friendly and faith-based entertainment, we will be featuring several performers from local churches. To top the night off, for the first time ever on Opening Night, we will be introducing a nationally known headlining act!

She's also authored or co-authored 14 books and appeared in or voiced characters in several films, including Left Behind: The Movie, and VeggieTales: An Easter Carol.
