NEWS ABOUT Joshua Fest,
I think we can all agree we had an amazing 2016. We are truly thankful for the wonderful support that you all have shown us over the years.
We are well aware that a lot of you have been wondering and asking us: “What’s up with Joshua Fest for 2017?”, and “when are you going to sell tickets?” and “when can I plan my vacation?” and “what is happening to our country?”. Well, we can try to answer all but the last question. But first, a little background…
Joshua Fest began in 2003 in Quincy as a tiny little festival (really, more of a big party because I don’t think you can have a festival when you only sell 200 tickets). Over the years it has grow up a little bit–not huge or anything like Creation but big enough to support itself financially (kind of), but more importantly, big enough to reach more people and affect and change more peoples lives for Christ. However, despite appearances from the outside, last year was a difficult year for us both financially and mentally. To explain a little more, our organization is run entirely by unpaid (volunteer) staff, not just by staff that run the operations during Labor Day Weekend, but also those of us that organize, promote, administer, and prepare for the festival throughout the year. This means that our team is serving Joshua Fest while simultaneously trying to manage our day jobs, whether it’s other businesses to run or families to support during our day-to-day lives. And while our team is dedicated and excited to support the festival, there is a limit to our efforts. This fact combined with the increased cost of running the festival (everything costs more, including bands, facilities, rentals, production, etc.) has placed an increasing burden on the festival and those who run it.
But don’t worry, we’re not giving up!
What we have decided, after much discussion and prayer, is that we will not be holding a “normal” 3-day camping festival in 2017. This accomplishes a few things: 1) Our team can take a little break from the routine (more of a mental break); 2) We can revisit our budget in an attempt to be more diligent with our finances; 3) most importantly, we can allow ourselves some more time to ensure that the long-term vision and purpose of Joshua Fest is fully considered. The bottom line is that if Joshua Fest isn’t growing (by measure of its outreach), then by definition it is stagnant.
So wait, what does this mean for 2017, you ask? We don’t know quite yet. Honestly, we are still trying to come up with something for this year, perhaps a mid-summer event of some sort. Simultaneously, we are already making our plans for a normal 3-day Camping event in Quincy in 2018 (exact weekend to-be-determined).
We thank you all for your patience. We understand that many of your plans revolve around Joshua Fest. We will be in touch in the coming weeks with any announcements on what might be taking place this year.
In His Service,
Chris and Aaron
