GraceFest returns for its 13th year building on a great annual tradition for Antelope Valley residents.
GraceFest is a Christian music festival featuring national and local Christian artists and worship bands. This year GraceFest is a worship theme and the Lord, Jesus Christ is the star of the show. So join us in uniting together as one body through worship and praise! We invite you to come out and join in the fun, excitement, and relaxation of being with family and community in the late Antelope Valley summer.
This year GraceFest, like all other events, is returning from cancellation last year as a result of the COVID virus pandemic. We are excited to bring this year’s festival back the best way possible. 2021 is a transitional year for GraceFest and although the gathering will be shorter hours, fewer performers, and fewer stage activities, we do anticipate bringing the full-scale event back in 2022. Thank you for your support and understanding! It means a great deal to us as we do our best to follow the lead of the Holy Spirit.
Saturday's worship themed event presents the top worship artists in the U.S. featuring;
MAVERICK CIY MUSIC, PAT BARRETT, AND BRYAN & KATIE TORWALT, PLUS LOCAL ARTIST JOHN STRATTON plus local artist John Stratton. The main stage also includes special presenters and announcements about what Christians are doing in the Antelope Valley. Gates open at 4:00 p.m. and the local artists begin performing at 5:00 p.m., event ends at 10 p.m.

SECURITY AT GRACEFEST
GraceFest has three levels of onsite security. Firstly, an experienced volunteer security team many of which have backgrounds in law enforcement, work the interior posts. Secondly, a private security service called OPSEC conduct all exterior duties such as bag check and guarding gates. Thirdly, the Antelope Valley Search and Rescue team of officers are uniformed and armed on site. In addition, the City of Palmdale assigns specific drive-bys and visits from on-duty sheriffs.
Finally, GraceFest has the top Security Officer of all creation overseeing His people. Where without God nothing is good, holy, and righteous, yet because of our faith we choose to place all trust and peace in Him. "Everything" is in His hands.
