The 3rd Annual Musical Soul Food Festival is taking place June 23rd from 1PM to 9PM in Chesapeake City Park. It’s an event families – and fans of gospel music – won’t want to miss.
The festival is powered by the Musical Soul Food Radio Network, an organization that syndicates inspirational, family-friendly content all across the country. On June 23rd the national radio network comes to life by gathering over 25 renowned inspirational acts all in one place.
This year’s highlights include Cece Winas, the best-selling female gospel singer of all time, and a 12-time Grammy Winner. Grammy-nominated and Stellar Award winner JJ Harrston will also be there, along with many more talented and award-winning musicians. You can check out the entire line up here.
On top of great live acts, the Festival will have vendors, food trucks and a mobile video game truck so the kids can play while parents enjoy the music. If you haven’t been, now is the perfect time to check out this day of family fun. The 2018 turnout is expected to be around 15,000—their biggest year yet. While there are plans to bring the festival on the road as it grows in popularity, Chesapeake will always be its home.
“Chesapeake is the perfect location,” says April Chandler, who co-founded the festival with her husband Mike Chandler. April is also the festival’s Chief Marketing Officer. Not only are her and her husband Chesapeake natives, but the beauty of Chesapeake City Park and its central location convinced them that it was ideal for their event.
Tickets to the Musical Soul Food Festival are only $10, with VIP tickets where you can meet your favorite artists selling for $35.
“It’s just a great, great family day,” April says, adding that her main goal for the festival is that people “leave inspired.”
Whether you’re a fan of gospel music, or just looking to enjoy a family friendly event and some great food and tunes, come to the Musical Soul Food Festival and let the moments begin.
