About LIFT CITY FESTIVAL
A Festival of faith
In Southern Louisiana, Festivals are at the heart of Creole Land Culture. It’s our way of coming together to celebrate all the good that life has to offer! This year we invite you to our first annual LIft City Festival, in celebration of 10 years of our organization LIFTing the city! Lift City Fest will amplify the Festival tradition and turn its attention toward the music, food, and content that will fuel your faith and LIFT your spirit.
Our mission is to LIFT the city of Lafayette, its surrounding areas, and anyone who visits the heart of Cajun Country by way of events that bring our diverse community together. These events are divided into two sectors.
LIFT CITY CON: Designed to bridge the gap between the foundational principles of our faith walk and the tools, technology, and testimonies available to the Modern Christian (Coming in future years).
LIFT CITY FEST: Designed to present innovative experiences and spaces that unapologetically celebrate Christ Centered & Christ Like music and art.
This Festival of Faith will amplify the modern Christian experience by curating an event that fosters environments for cross-community collaboration & exposure while leaving room for free worship and powerful encounters with God.
Lift City Church exists to LIFT the City. We love unconditionally, live generously, lead passionately, & LIFT intentionally.
