Matthew West, Crowder, Sidewalk Prophets, Mac Powell and more will be coming to the Northern Wisconsin State Fairgrounds in the Chippewa Valley July 29-31 for the Christian music festival OneFest.
This community event offers a diversity of music, inspiring messages, family activities, youth entertainment and ministry showcases meant to encourage, entertain, and unify people of faith.
The Chippewa Valley hosts a variety of summer music fests, and in 2016 event coordinator Heather Flashinski was drawn to the idea of pulling together a celebratory Christian music event offering a variety of music styles. Listening to the song “Do Something” by Matthew West offered encouragement to create the festival. For this reason, Heather is incredibly excited to bring him to the fourth annual OneFest.
Over 54 people from diverse Christian backgrounds are part of the organizing group who meet regularly to plan this year’s festival. After being welcomed into the Christian Festival Association last year, this group reflects on previous successes and studies similar concerts throughout the country to make OneFest an unforgettable experience for all attendees. They are committed to a family-focused event that they hope will grow.
