Backfieldfest is back!
After a few years of pause, we are excited to re-launch this fun and awesome event!
Backfieldfest began in 2018 with the heart and hope to create an opportunity for youth to gather in fun, community, and worship together - outdoor in the backfield of Calvary church property! For those of us who love camp and will be missing the camp vibe, this will be a great evening of camp style fun and community!
Come for the night to enjoy some fun, snacks, games, bonfires, and of course some outdoor worship! You are welcome to stay the night by 'camping' in the backfield! Grab a tent, grab some friends, and let's have some great Jesus fun together!
Please fill out the registration/permission form so we know who is coming and to ensure liability/permissions are covered. Click here to register! If there are a few folks just show up and register on the day of as well, that's okay too. You are welcome to drop us a message if you are hoping to come, any questions you have, etc. before registering.
This event is weather permitting. While we will adjust to a bit of rain, it just won't be the same epic-ness if it's downpouring and have to be inside, so we will cancel if the weather is unfavourable. All registrants will be notified in advance and we will update our communications as needed.
Here's the full details
Saturday, Sept 10 - 6:30pm to Sunday, Sept 11 after church - 11:30am
You don't have to stay for the whole time. You are welcome to join just for the evening. Saturday night evening festivities will wrap up by 10:30/11:00pm.
Calvary church begins at Sunday 10am and it's a vibrant, youth friendly environment! If you are able, join us for some more worship.
Or get picked up when works for you.
