For the last eight years the Willard Hope Center has hosted Hopefest on the streets of downtown Willard. Hopefest is a Christian music fest to celebrate the love that Christ has for each and everyone of us. Our goal is that hearts will be changed and lives restored through music and the gospel of Christ.
We believe that you will hear some of the best Christian music as we strive to bring in the best national Christian music acts that we can. Our prayer is that Hopefest will not be an event that you will remember for years later, but for an eternity to come.
