This year we will again be partnering with Hope City Church to bring you a more Gospel-focused Fall Fest that will be filled with all of the fun items you’ve come to expect (like bounce houses for the kids, face painting, games, bingo prizes, great food, etc), plus some exciting new additions like performances by AngelStreet, a Gospel rapper, an encouraging word from Pastor Cooper and much more!
The festivities will happen on Sunday, October 29, from 1-4pm at the Bickford Community Center (233 Henry Ave). This is a GREAT time for every age group! This is an annual event that the community and volunteers look forward to every year! It is also a great way to experience our North Memphis neighborhood and to get to know Hope City a bit more now that they have been around for one year.
VOLUNTEERS: We need help coordinating games, monitoring the bouncy castles, managing the prize table, face painting, food service, bingo calling, etc. You can serve in various areas and during various time slots. If you are interested in getting involved, contact Neko.
PRIZE & CANDY DONATIONS: We also love to bless Fall Fest attendees with the fun of winning great prizes through kid-appropriate games as well as the bingo table! We will be giving away two $50 Oasis Appliance gift certificates, as well as 2 adult and 2 children’s bikes in addition to numerous other prizes!
If you would like to donate prizes (either small or large), please let us know or drop off your items at the Information Desk or Reception Desk at Hope Church (mark donations for Oasis of Hope). We are always looking for items such as tools, towels, blankets, cleaning supplies, Kroger gift cards, Family Dollar gift cards, toys, board games, domino sets, playing cards, jewelry, small electronics, and footballs/basketballs/baseballs. If you’d like us to shop for you, click here to donate online.
Free food will be available! Hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, cookies, drinks will be offered.
North Memphis residents: Please plan to invite your neighbors!!!
As always, we will need many volunteers and many donations of candy and prizes! Plan to join us and get in on the fun and help us welcome our friends – new and old!
