What is Revived?

In a time when society is trying to convince our youth that life is all about self; self-indulgence, self-centeredness, self-reliance, our desire is to help the youth see that’s its really about surrendering self and relying on Jesus.

In Psalm 119:50 we read “Your promise revives me; it comforts me in all my troubles.” We desire to see our youth find comfort in God’s promises.  To renew, recharge, rejuvenate, and rekindle their faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Invite your friends, family, and youth groups to join us for our seventh year of providing this awesome opportunity to reconnect with God through praise, worship, and service.
With all the negative influences our youth face on a daily basis, we feel it is very important to offer our youth as many opportunities as possible to:

  • Grow stronger in their faith
  • Meet and fellowship with other young Christians
  • Hear strong sermons and messages that relate to them
  • Hear testimonials from their peers so they realize that sharing their story can be “cool”
  • Realize that Christian music can be modern, fun, and relevant to them

FESTIVAL DETAILS:
• Friday thru Sunday
• Admission: $5 for adults, $3 for seniors and students, $1 for children
Military service members get in at no charge

Pigfoot. Big Boned. Porky Butts.  They’re not names of pro wrestlers. They are just some of the barbecue pitmasters who will be competing at the East West BBQ Fest this weekend in downtown Greensboro.

Whether it’s ribs, brisket, pork butt or chicken, you’ll probably find it at the three-day barbecue and music festival, where pitmasters from North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Alabama, Arkansas, Texas and Ohio will convene.

Other food and beverage vendors will line the midway, as well.

In addition to the barbecue, the festival will have a main stage with music acts such as up-and-coming Nashville star Brandon Bailey, acoustic singer Natalie Gelman, bluesman Lightnin’ Charlie and rockers Bootleg Dynasty.

The festival features sideshow acts such as the Squidling Brothers and the risque Defiant Whisky Shady Lady Saloon.

And there will even be wrestlers.

This year, the festival features Lucha Libre masked-style wrestlers with matches Friday night and all day Saturday and Sunday.

It also will have a market where vendors will sell all sorts of cool things and services.

This is the festival’s third year, and it moves from Festival Park to a new location on East Washington Street.

The event is produced by Allen McDavid of AKA Entertainment and Media, which is behind the popular Texas Pete Twin City RibFest in Winston-Salem and other festivals across the state.
