ABOUT

Please join us for the 13th Annual Praise Fest.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

In 2009, Praise Fest was created to bring back families and communities for a weekend of A Gospel Music Experience along with family fun activities in the aftermath of one of the nation’s most devastating hurricanes Hurricane Katrina.


VERSATILE ENTERTAINMENT presents The 13th Annual Praise Fest. 

“BACK ON THE BAYOU”


Praise Fest is a highly anticipated 3-day Outdoor Event that is FREE to all and takes place every October on Bayou St. John.


We are very excited about the Local and National Christian/Gospel music artists, entertainers, and world renowned speakers that will once again grace our stage and minister to the festival attendees over the 3-day period. The purpose of this event is to bring different cultures together to Praise & Worship the Lord Jesus Christ as one body. The audience at this event will be a diverse crowd including, families, churches, community leaders, and professionals.
