This Christian music festival is fun for the whole family!
While sitting around a breakfast table in early 2012, discussing the less than positive direction in which youth of our area seemed to be heading, a group of local business people wondered what they could do to stop the downward spiral and change the direction. Their answer was to provide a safe, family friendly, one day concert event, designed purposely to encourage social and racial diversity and kindness. An event filled with only positive messages. A day for fun and laughter, a day that entire families could enjoy together.
A committee was assembled, a budget was set and the local business community contributed $60,000 toward the inaugural event. To sum it up: Over 3,000 were in attendance, many ministries participated and the community embraced Rock The Island Festival!
Since 2012 we have seen thousands of people every year come to Ojibway Island to enjoy the festival. We’ve also had the opportunity to speak into the lives of thousands of students in our community through Rock the Schools. We are so thankful for what has happened and excited for what lies ahead as we continue to invest in the Great Lakes Bay Region.
