The nonprofit, family friendly Christian music festival, begun in 2003, focuses on young families and teens. Genres range from worship to hard core, according to organizers. Workshops and open forum discussions on "faith, pain and hope" will also be offered; as well as kids' activities including face painting, arts and crafts, bounce houses, puppets and more. Festival officials Chris Spano, Mike Sprouse, Aaron Diello and Ivan Wiegand are all 1994 graduates of Quincy High School. Wiegand said this year's production should see record attendance. "We think there will be between 3,000 to 4,000 attendees," he said. "We expect it to be the biggest we've had." Wiegand added that the fest was held in Amador County for a couple of years and they're excited to bring it back to their original roots. Attendees are encouraged to bring camping gear (tents, sleeping bags, flashlight, etc.), weather-appropriate clothing, toiletries, towels, food and sun block.
