CrossFest Comes To Pickens


Jasper, GA – Hosted by Encounter Ministries, CrossFest is a new Christian festival that began Saturday, July 22, from 2:00 P.M. until dark at Lee Newton Park.

Various local churches and ministries set up in the park with booths to share information about different services in the community and ways to be involved.

The event featured live bands, drama groups, local art, and different family friendly activities. Admission was free, along with food at a first come, first serve basis.

CrossFest had a great turn out and gave the community an opportunity to have family fun with waterslides, games, and worship. Those who attended hope to see the festival become a recurring event in our town.
