What is Flint Hills Praisefest?

Flint Hills Praisefest is Manhattan’s largest free Christian music festival—but it’s about more than music.

What we want to accomplish with Praisefest is three-fold.


The main focus is worship. Music is a powerful worship medium and we believe that making a joyful noise unto the Lord is really important.   


We firmly believe that by bringing the body of Christ together to worship, we will foster new growth in our faith and develop a desire to step into uncharted territory and serve the Lord in his leading.


Donations, silent auctions, raffles and all sorts of different things we do during the event allow us to provide for those in need.


The money raised this year goes to The House—a non-profit café seeking to holistically minister to the community of Ogden.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much are tickets?

The festival is FREE for anyone to attend and it’s a family-friendly atmosphere for all ages. All are welcome. However, to help us plan accordingly and cater to the needs of attendees, we encourage anyone who is interested in attending to RSVP by filling out a quick form.

Was this event called Lutherpalooza in the past?

Yes! This year’s Praisefest will be the 6th annual event, but it used to be known as Lutherpalooza. However, our board wanted to ensure that people from all over would understand that this is a non-denominational event. ALL are welcome. So, just a simple name change, but same event.
