Lifest 2005 Builds Bridges

The youth driven, family friendly Lifest 2005 has come to the Sunnyview Fairgrounds in Oshkosh, Wisconsin to build bridges with Christians and churches.

On July 7-10, Lifest will be seeing tens of thousands of people of all ages who will spend days in worship and fun. This year's festival features over 100 artists, speakers and entertainers, including Audio Adrenaline, Bebo Norman, Caedmon's Call, Chris Tomlin, Kutless, Rebecca St. James, and more.

Lifest serves to present the gospel through entertainment, diversity of the arts, training, and discipleship as people from across the nation and Canada take part in the large event.

Fun zones include a skate park, a karaoke competition, paintball, sports, a new and improved prayer tent, and a kidzone. Special features include The Crew Exreme Team -- extreme sports -- and a fireworks show Friday night after the Newsboys concert.

Caedmon's Call is also holding a seminar at the Karaoke Tent on Friday to talk about their experiences in the missions field and about how attendants can get involved.

Lifest is still accepting volunteers (14 and up) to fill up more than 500 positions during the four day event

Since its beginning in 1999, Lifest has experienced an increase of 300 percent in attendance.
