In spite of our efforts, it has become clear that we simply will not be able to host the Fan Festival this year. The Visalia convention center is currently closed, and they do not know when City & State government will allow them to reopen, and once that happens, what the reopening will look like in terms of crowd capacity. Your safety along with all the artists and the production staff, is our greatest concern. With most of you traveling in from out of town, we thought it was best to announce this today.
We have a wonderful lineup of artists confirmed for 2022. If you are currently holding tickets, they will be valid for next year along with any Marriott reservations made through iTickets.
Thank you for your faithful commitment to help keep Gospel music alive on the west coast.
We will be back!! And we’ll work hard to make next year the best Fan Festival yet.
A personal note from dad --
To the West Coast Fans and Friends of Gospel Music: we have always looked forward to coming to California & we sincerely appreciate your support & how you have prayed for our family, not only Us but all the Gospel groups.
It is with heavy hearts that my sons had to make this most difficult decision again concerning Fan Fest 2021. I am writing to you today to ask you to be of good courage, dear friends. This is a very trying time for all of us, but it is only a chapter in the book; it is not the whole story! We, as Christians, know the author and finisher of our story and he is not finished with us yet!
Be strong, Brothers and Sisters.
Brighter days are ahead. Pray for us & Lord willing, we will see You in 2022.
Claude, Dean & Mike..
Visalia Convention Center
Your 2020 ticket order will automatically be rolled over to the 2022 Fan Fest with your same order number, ticket types, and seat assignments. If you purchased a Marriott hotel package through the FanFest / iTickets web site, that will roll over as well. This will also apply to the Hopper Heritage Foundation Golf Classic.
