Light the Way Festival to return to Olive Branch

The Light the Way Christian Music Festival is returning to Olive Branch. The ministry had its first festival event at Olive Branch City Park last year and has announced that Olive Branch will be a return stop in 2024.

This year’s festival, a two-day event, will be held July 5-6, from 4-10 p.m. each night. The ministry has announced some of its artists for the event, including Big Daddy Weave, Tasha Layton and Luke Bower on Friday night, followed by We the Kingdom, KB, and Josiah Queen on Saturday.

One of the new additions for this year is what Light the Way called “Charities of Choice,” local nonprofits that will be highlighted and supported. The charities selected for this year are John 3:16 Ministries, Tunica Humane Society, House of Grace, the DeSoto County Dream Center, and the Honor Our Troops Classic.

Light the Way says tickets will be free general admission tickets this year, although contributions to support the ministry are accepted and can be paid on the website.
