/ -- The team behind CityFest East Texas with Andrew Palau – the large, multicultural music festival scheduled for October 5-6, 2019 – has announced the artist lineup for this year's much-anticipated event.
The festival will include performances by top Christian recording artists Blanca, Marisol Park, Ryan Stevenson, The Newsboys, Pat Barrett, and Lecrae. Additionally, award-winning country artist Josh Turner will perform during the final night of CityFest East Texas.
The FREE event is being produced by more than 300 local area churches with the support of the Oregon-based Luis Palau Association. It's a result of years of prayer and planning by hundreds of leaders from the faith, business, and civic communities in East Texas. The vision is to bring the Christian community together in greater unity, service, and proclamation – setting aside their differences to bless and serve East Texas.
Focused on encouraging unity and collaboration across all communities, denominations, and ethnicities, CityFest East Texas hopes to celebrate and accelerate the good work of the Church over the long term, helping further influence culture, change lives, and meet critical needs. The hope is that this campaign will also inspire similar efforts in other cities throughout Texas.
CityFest East Texas is completely free. In addition to great music, the two-day festival will feature world-class action sports demonstrations, activities for people of all ages, and a message of hope from evangelist Andrew Palau. Surrounding events are also being planned for the area, including Spanish-speaking events for Latinos, a buckout and BBQ, a gathering for business and civic leaders, and a luncheon for women.
This festival is part of a larger, global effort by the Palau Association to support and encourage churches as they serve their city and share the Good News of Jesus Christ.
