Jfest Tickets Go On Sale On Thursday

Thursday, February 7, 2019

2019 Jfest tickets will go on sale on Thursday.

Regular Jfest ticket prices remain the same $25.00, but to celebrate the move to the new venue at the TN Riverpark on Amnicola Highway, tickets will start at the most affordable price in Jfest history. The earlier tickets are purchased the more affordable they are.

Jfest previously announced that they are excited to fill the void left by the abbreviated Riverbend Festival and the elimination of Faith and Family Night.  This year’s festival will have the largest line up in Jfest’s 21-year history:  Grammy Award winning Hip Hop Artist Lecrae, Multi-Dove award winner Matthew West, Grammy Award winner Tauren Wells, Building 429, Ryan Stevenson, The Young Escape, and Riley Clemmons.

The Biggest Fireworks in Jfest history and plenty of Free Parking, ensures that Jfest continues to be the best event for families and people of faith.

“We are anticipating the early bird Jfest tickets to sell out in record time,” says festival director Ted Gocke.  “People are blown away at the line up, the beautiful new venue on the TN River, and the growth of Jfest!”

Tickets can be purchased at www.jfest.com
