July 19 (5 p.m.) to July 20 (noon), 2013, at the Jefferson County Fair Park
Hope Fest is a celebration of life, family and friends. It's a time for us to find healing and strength as we share our journey with each other. We invite you to join us as an individual or as a team of family members, co-workers or friends. Together we raise money to support local residents who have been affected by Alzheimer's, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, seizure disorder and other life-limiting illnesses.
Hope Fest is a special time and place for us, as a community, to gather, talk, walk and reflect. Our track is lined with Candles of Hope luminaries that celebrate and honor the lives of our loved ones. Handwritten messages adorn each lantern-bag. Heartfelt words and pictures from mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, husbands, wives, sons, daughters, grandchildren and friends remind us of why are here. These messages make us aware of how lucky we are to have, and have had, these incredible people touch our lives.
Hope Fest is full of many other activities and events too - both powerful and fun. There is truly something for everyone. Over 2,000 people participated in 2012.
Join us on July 19-20, 2013, at the Jefferson County Fair Park, for two days of HOPE. It's a moving and meaningful experience that you will surely enjoy.
