9th Annual Gospel Fest Celebrates Black History Month

HENDERSON, Nev. – The City of Henderson Parks and Recreation Department and Department of Cultural Arts and Tourism, along with KCEP Power 88 are co-hosting Gospel Fest, a free annual event celebrating Black History Month. The 2-day celebration takes place Feb. 24 and Feb. 25 at Black Mountain Recreation Center, 599 Greenway Rd. Admission is free for all ages, but tickets are recommended by calling 267-4040.

A performance of the Broadway musical “Hiram & Nettie,” produced by Broadway In the Hood, will take place 7:00-9:30 p.m., Friday, Feb. 24 and again noon-2:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 25. The play offers a riveting musical history lesson as forbidden love from two different worlds is revealed. Audience members are invited to join the cast and crew for a talk-back session immediately following each performance.

An evening of gospel music including Southern traditional, modern contemporary, and urban contemporary will be held 6:00-8:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 25. Performers include Victory Missionary Baptist Church Voices of Victory and its men’s choir, Joshua Generation, Roland Gibson and Dominion, and Penny Thredwell.

Vendors will be selling CDs, apparel, art, keepsakes, beverages, and barbecue-style food items starting at 4:00 p.m. on Feb. 24 and at 11:00 a.m. on Feb. 25.

Gospel Fest is sponsored in part by AVI SPL Rental Staging Productions, The Monkey Gym, Broadway In the Hood, and Sam’s Club. The City of Henderson is neutral on matters of religion and does not endorse any religion or religious viewpoint by way of its sponsorship of Gospel Fest.
