Fill your calendar with fun all year long. From art exhibitions and demonstrations to film, food and wine festivals, there’s always a good time to be had in and around the Cultural Arts District. If you’d like to see all of Rockport’s events head over to the Rockport Fulton Chamber of Commerce Event Calendar.
Our festival began back in 1994 as a gospel music concert, sponsored by “Rockport’s Gospel Force” police quartet. The Gospel Music Festival has continued to grow throughout the years much because of your continued support and through your attendance, your prayers and your contributions. Without your consistent support the festival would never have grown to the four-day event that it became last year.
We are extremely excited and blessed to have back with us again this year The Nelons who have numerable awards and accolades including three GRAMMY Nominations, Six Gospel Music Association DOVE Awards and many songs that have soared to the top of national radio charts. This family’s innovative music embraces traditional roots, while simultaneously reaching beyond various musical boundaries with incomparable harmonies. The Nelons’ combine the elements you’ve come to expect from the group, unparalleled vocal excellence and a sound built on interplay between soaring soprano and smooth alto with an intertwining tenor. Add the wonderful tight family harmony with an uncanny gift of communicating God’s love, you have a worship experience that you’ll not soon forget!
Please pray for the continued success of this festival and make plans to be with us for the next Rockport Gospel Music Festival in January, 2019 for our 23rd Annual Rockport Gospel Music Festival.
