Three days and nights of live Gospel music, fellowship, and family fun!

In 2005, Wilds & Associates organized and promoted the first Southern Gospel Music FanFair in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The event was relocated to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee in 2009. The following year, Wilds & Associates launched the Country Gospel Music FanFest, adding even more variety for Gospel music fans. Changing the name to Gospel Music FanFair, both events were combined into one six-day event in 2014 and relocated to Somerset, Kentucky. For the 20th anniversary event in 2024, Gospel Music FanFair is moving to the beautiful, historic town of Fayette, Alabama. The annual mega concert event features a variety of talent from new artists to living legends as Gospel music fans gather from all over to enjoy morning worship services, daily showcases, afternoon matinees and spectacular evening concerts. As the "grand finale", the three-day event concludes with the highly anticipated Gospel Music Fan Awards. Make plans now to attend the 20th annual Gospel Music FanFair!
