New this year, on Thursday July 27, the second day of the festival has been specifically planned to center on worship. KBNOW (Kingdom Bound Night of Worship) will be a special themed day within the larger festival featuring some of the best worship leaders in the country. A special buy 3 get the 4th free ticket offer is available for the day. “Everywhere we look we see churches uniting across social, racial, and denominational lines so together they can serve the cause of Christ” said festival communications director Dave Bruno. “We want to invite everyone to join us for this special night of worship”.
