What is Freedom ’15 Music Fest?

Freedom ’15 is a fundraiser for Damascus Way Ministries. An outdoor Music, Food, and Family Fun Festival! What better occasion to kick off this annual event than by celebrating our 40th Anniversary. Since 1975 Damascus Way has been serving men and their families as they make the challenging transition from prisons, jails, and addictive behaviors back into their communities. You will have the opportunity to participate in a freewill offering during the day.


What can I do there?

Enjoy entertainment from 5 live bands. Sample delicious, healthy food with a Middle Eastern flare at our “Taste of Israel” (OK, we’ll have some regular stuff too!) Bring your young ones to our Kids Korner. Learn about other Outstanding Local Ministries that we partner with by visiting their exhibits.

It’s the perfect outdoor summer event and tickets are reasonably priced to make this affordable and family-friendly. $10 Individual, $25 Family (We don’t even mind if you grab a couple of neighbor kids and call ’em your own for the day!)
