Autumn Fest coming to NRV Fairgrounds

The first NRV Autumn Fest— an all day faith-based music festival— will be held Saturday, Sept. 12 at the NRV Fairgrounds in Dublin.
The event will kick off at noon and will feature performances by local, regional and national musicians throughout the day until 10 p.m., when the festival ends.
Bands and musicians performing include two-time Dove Award winning and Grammy nominated group DecembeRadio, COR13, David Upton (former worship pastor of Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California led by Rick Warren, author of The Purpose Driven Life), Sara Reeves, Aside Oceans, Background Ministries, Carry the Cross, Point of Honor, and more.
Praise and drama teams will also perform.
Along with the musical entertainment, the festival will include several moonwalks and a game tent with Wii Rock Band for people to compete for fun. In addition, event sponsor Bluefield College will be giving away a college scholarship and other prizes.
The idea for this event was born this past January when Chris Hayes and his wife, Michele, decided to organize an event in the community that would inspire the values of being a better person, a better husband or wife, friend, co-worker and neighbor, and that would give back to the overall community.
Hayes said that with the help of friends Larry Hancock, Robbie Morris, and Brian Ratcliff, and others, who all "shared the same desire to serve in their communities," they decided to create an event that would be relevant to current times, as inexpensive as possible, offer something for everyone, and have a positive impact on the community.
"Most importantly, we wanted an event that would renew faith and inspire a new day in the NRV," Hayes said.
Now that the group has taken their ideas and organized NRV Autumn Fest with the help of sponsors Bluefield College, Modea and The Weigh Station, Hayes said he believes that they have achieved their goals.
"As a testament to how God can show up, we are now the largest outdoor Christian music festival in Southwest Virginia in our very first year," he said. "NRV Autumn Fest will be over 10 hours long and will consist of nationally recognized and local Christian music artists and speakers of faith seeking to encourage our communities."
NRV Autumn Fest tickets are $8 in advance or $12 at the gate. Groups of10 or more are $7 each, and children under 5 get in free. Tickets are available for purchase now at www.NRVautumnfest.com, or can be purchased at Emmanuel Bookstore in Pulaski or The Movie Place in Dublin.
