Dear Fellow Music and Art Lovers!
X-fest is now in the process of finalizing plans for the 2011 Festival to be held Labor Day Weekend (September 2nd thru 4th), at the Skamania County Fairgrounds in Stevenson, Washington. We are in our 8th year and continue to evolve and grow. We exist to bring individuals together from various backgrounds to enjoy three days of  God,  music, art and worship!  We welcome everyone into a community where they matter. We endeavor to provide a safe place for those who have slipped through the cracks of church, family or society.  We are artists, musicians, dancers, and writers who love God passionately. Come and join in the fun. We look forward to meeting and getting to know you.
For more information, check out our web site: .
We are currently looking for new bands to showcase.

There are no stage fees, or merch table fees. 
Thank you,

Larch Prison Visit

On Saturday we spent the day at Larch Corrections Center.  After meeting at Boppin' Bo's we rode up to the prison as a group.  Larch is back in the woods about 10 miles east of Hockinson, Washington.  Upon arrival, we emptied the bikes, snacked, and waited for the okay to take the bikes and sound equipment inside the fence.

Once inside we had a great time with the band playing and prisoners coming around to talk with us.  Some looked at the bikes, some wanted to tell their story, and some just wanted someone to talk with.  We then started up the bike games.  I think almost everyone enjoyed the games, even those who became closely acquainted with the slick grass during the obstacle course.  The games also included Plumber's Nightmare, Ring Toss, Ball Transfer, and the Slooooooow Races.   The slowest bike was made entirely of wood by one of the inmates.  That piece of artwork can only be described as amazing! 

The band played and truly ministered to a large group.  It was heartening to see so many Christians in the mix.

Thanks to everyone who participated.....

The band was called "Repent".
