Gospel Fest Best semi-finalists have already been selected from previous auditions held at Eastland and Northland Malls.

In addition to the music and cars, there will be fabulous food, clowns, train rides, inflatables for kids, games, prizes and giveaways.
The roots of this event go back to the 1980's when the church would sell barbecue dinners as a fundraiser. Some of the deacons would bring their classic cars to the event, and it would draw crowds, and of course customers. Over the years, more aspects were added, and it evolved into an outdoor gospel fest and classic car show.
