~ Music Festivals 2016 Calendar ~
~ NOTE:  "2016  Dates in Red" ~



Howdy folks,

Well another season has passed and we thank our Father God for all His Blessings, including this web-site which has been dedicated to Him.
We realize that a lot of you folks schedule your seasons traveling around the Gospel Music Festivals and we do try to post them as soon as possible, but we can only do so, when and only when, we receive the confirmation dates from the various event hosts.
The festivals "usually" follow the same weekend pattern each season, but this has been known to change as for example, farming hosts work around field work.
I look at it this way, if you miss an event, God needed you elsewhere and that's where He placed you!
Visit us here daily, for the new message posted daily, listen to God's Love Letter in Inspiration Corner, then relax with the KJV in audio in the Bible page.
This web-site is a complete ministry, for all ages. Check out every section, you'll be Blessed; for this is His site and delivers His Love, through out!
God Bless you all,
Bob Olynyk and Cheryl Heflin, hosting "Our Father's Web-site".


Don't forget to: Bring your blankets, cameras, Happy Faces, lawn chairs, outdoor games, ( baseball/basketball/volleyball, etc.), umbrellas and "Skeeter Juice", (some areas are fogged/sprayed. If you have allergies, best ask at gate, if area was/will be treated, as festival organizers, are not responsible for same). Dress for the weather and DON'T FORGET your Border Crossing Papers for the Festivals/Events in the U.S.A. (Bottineau, Hazen, and The Int'l Peace Festival) etc. If in doubt, check first! All festivals have food concessions on site. From light snacks to full meals. ( Prices are reasonable ).
Camp sites are available at most Festivals, ( serviced/un-serviced). Most are Free Will...(some do charge....Reasonable Rates) Call ahead. ( Placard must be visible at all times)Ask Attendants, ( where present), upon entering site, or Watch for Postings. If you do not have a Handicapped Placard......and are in need of assistance.....consideration will be given!

If you are traveling a long distance, we suggest you call a event/festival/program contact person to confirm the event/festival/program is still going on.
We only have whatever information is given to us by the responsible organizers and we can not, nor will not, be held responsible for any miss-information, cancellations due to other persons lack of communication or weather conditions. If/when we receive word of any cancellation, we put this information on the
site immediately upon receiving it.
It is our mission to promote God's Word as well as all Christian/Gospel Programs with a Professional Attitude.
This web-site is Blessed by and For Our Father's Glory.

Nola memorial

Folks, it is with earthly sadness that we announce the passing of Nola on May 2, 2010. Nola was called Home to the Supper table at 10:00 a.m., with joy in her heart and her Family by her side. Father, we know that You have a mission for Nola beside you and we wish to thank-you, from the bottom of our hearts for sharing her as a Loving Sister while with us on earth.
Nola was born with a smile, always had one for every person she met with and had that same smile when she slipped away, Home. Thank You Father. Thank You.
Thank you Nola and to Dave her husband for all the people they touched and uplifted over the years. They showed a lot of folks just who the Lord was and what He could and would do, if you invited Him to be your rock.


NOTE:  We still have NO confirmation date from these folks.
