GC Cancels Agapefest

Greenville College’s annual AgapeFest has been cancelled for 2014. The event was scheduled at The Family Arena in St. Charles, MO for this Saturday, April 26.

All customers who purchased tickets through MetroTix will be automatically refunded in the coming days. Customers who purchased tickets from the Family Arena will be contacted by the Family Arena with instructions for their refunds.

Greenville College released the following statement Tuesday morning:

“Each year, AgapeFest staff look forward to spending time with festival attendees, and they regret that the event will not take place as planned on April 26. The festival, alongside many other Christian music festivals, has experienced a steady decline in ticket sales over the past five years, which contributed to the festival’s location move from the Bond County Fairgrounds to the Family Arena. AgapeFest remains focused on its mission to further the Kingdom of Christ through music, service, and fellowship, and will continue to look for ways to provide a successful ministry. Festival organizers are currently working on future dates to bring artists to the area in 2015.”
