Risefest Brings Thousands To Sheldon

Sheldon, Iowa — Beautiful weather this past weekend helped draw thousands of visitors to Risefest, the Christian music festival held each Father’s Day Weekend in Sheldon.  Although wind and rains whipped through the grounds during the overnight hours Friday night, Risefest had gorgeous, sunshiny weather both Friday evening and all day Saturday for their 10th annual festival.

Although a final attendance total isn’t yet available, as you can see from the photos below, several thousand people came out to hear such artists as:  Matthew West; Good Little Giants; Remedy Drive; Sidewalk Prophets; Ginny Owens; Rend Collective and more.

Rise Ministries in Sheldon is the parent organization for Risefest, and Rise Ministries President Rob Roozeboom calls Risefest 2015 a major success.
