Creation Fest Ending After 44 Years

Published on april 2nd, 2023 | by Anthony Martinez

Creation Fest, the festival that began in 1979 during the last days of the Jesus Movement, is ending after 44 years, as announced by its organizers through a statement on their website and social networks.

The first Creation Fest was held June 21-23, 1979 and featured artists such as Barry McGuire, Sweet Comfort Band, Phil Keaggy, Nancy Honeytree Miller and Chuck Girard.

On March 23 the official lineup was posted which included artists such as Switchfoot, Katy Nichole, Mac Powell, Riley Clemons, Disciple and many more, unfortunately two days later the festival has been cancelled.

Below is the official announcement of the festival:

An Update on Creation Fest

It is with much prayer and consideration that the leadership of Creation Festival announce the end of the longstanding, multi-day event historically held at Agape Farm in Shirleysburg, PA. This event, birthed in the Jesus Movement, provided hope through the Gospel and music to millions of people over the past 44 years. Due to many factors, we as a leadership team have decided that this chapter in the Life of Creation Fest has come to a close. We are saddened but also hopeful for what God has in store for what’s next.

Thank you to all who have been a part of our story. Together we have seen God do the following: 

 115,000 people chose to follow Christ as their Savior. 
 16,000+ people have been water baptized at the festival. 
 2.1 million have attended and worshiped our Creator together. 
 43,000 people have served the festival, many for a decade or more. 
 43,000+ children have been rescued from poverty through Compassion International and other child sponsorship programs. 

 All current ticket holders will receive a refund. 

A subsequent announcement on where to access your refund will be forthcoming. As we draw this season to a close, we ask you to join us in prayer as we look to launch a New Vision for 2024 that will reach this next generation with the truth and hope of Jesus. 

Thank you for partnering with us in ministry for these past many years. We are excited to dream about what the festival will look like for the next generation. We look forward to unveiling the future plans during this new era of ministry.
