The Twin Cities’ Newest Summer Music Festival – Plymouth, MN

The Twin Cities’ Newest Summer Music Festival – Plymouth, MN


One Day. Two Stages. Nine Bands. A Community United In Hope.

 Is more than great music. It’s a great mission.

Wings for Widows provides personalized financial coaching to help the newly-widowed move forward with confidence and Hope.  This is our mission.

But widows aren’t the only ones who must hope.  Victims of violence at home and abroad need hope.  Families who can’t feed their children need hope.  The sick need hope.  We all need hope.  If there was ever a time our communities needed hope, it’s now.

HopeFest is the newest summer music festival in the Twin Cities, created to bring families and friends together to enjoy Great Music and support a Great Mission: to unite our community in hope.

HopeFest is the only music festival in Minnesota that showcases our own local great artists – from country to jazz, and pop to rock – and features a healthy dose of national Christian artists.  Music for everyone!

HopeFest is more than Great Music, however.  It’s a Great Mission to unite our community in hope.  To that end, we are sponsoring Hope Village, where businesses and nonprofit organizations can showcase products and services that offer hope and healing.  Hope Village is the heart of HopeFest.  If you are looking for support, make your way to Hope Village.  If the Twin Cities ever needed hope, it’s now.  Let’s unite our community in hope at HopeFest 2022.

Once you choose hope, anything is possible.
