Admission is free for the three-day event, which will feature music from the Charlie Hall Band, True North, Erick Alexander and the Joyful Sound Choir. Nationally known speaker, the Rev. Jim Singleton, is scheduled to provide inspirational messages during the festival.

“Because we are so close in proximity to the University of Central Oklahoma, one of the goals of the festival is to give encouragement to UCO students and staff,” the Rev. Matt Jones, the church's associate pastor, said.

The Islamic Society Of Greater Oklahoma City will host an open-house from 7 to 8:30 p.m. each Thursday at its mosque, 3815 N St. Clair.
