Summer Fest


July 31, 2021
at Tried Stone Christian Center
Blacksburg, VA

You’re invited to Summer Fest 2021… an Outdoor Summer Family Event!

Games, Activities, Food Vendors (Aloha Eddie Shaved Ice, Pizza sold by the slice), Live Music (PanJammers Steel Drum Orchestra), Giveaways, Fun and More for kids & teens!

Join us for a night of fun for the whole family.  Each child and teen will receive a “passport” when you arrive, at the Welcome Tent.   If you so choose, you can journey through the 12 stops/stations of “who you are in Christ,” and get your passport stamped at each location after you complete a quick challenge or activity.  Each stop will have a fun activity to do before moving on.  Bring your completed passport (with at least 10 out of the 12 stamps) to show at our “Passport Check”under the Pavilion and you will receive a prize!

Obstacle Course, Corn Hole, Mini Golf, “Donut” Walk, and more!

It’s so easy to get caught up in who we are not or a blurred image of what the world says we are or how we should appear to be.  But God has already said who you are, even before you were born.  We each have been MADE IN THE IMAGE of God.  After this last year of lock downs, quarantines, hard times, and even loss (for some), we all could use some encouragement, truth, and fun…Hope to see you there!

Ephesians 4:24 says, “and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.”  We pray that each person walks away from Summer Fest knowing and hearing that we have each been made in the image of God.  With that, our hope is that each child, teen, and family sees their identity is and can only be in Christ Jesus and in Him alone.

Parking will be in the front lot of Tried Stone Christian Center.  Once you arrive, head to the Welcome Tent to receive a wrist band and welcome bag.

Kids and Teens-We look forward to having you and your family joining us at this year’s Summer Fest.  Feel free to invite a friend to come along for a Summer Event you won’t want to miss.

Parents-pack up your kids and come ready to have a great time with the family!  All children must be accompanied by a parent/adult, this is not an event to drop off and leave.  Note for parents with younger children: Playground will be opened for parents who would like to supervise their toddlers (or elementary children) in fenced outdoor play area.

Pavilion space will be available to eat under and enjoy some shade.  Bathrooms will be available.
