What is Big River Gospel Fest?
Big River Gospel Fest is an Outdoor Southern Gospel Music Festival in the heart of the Florida panhandle. Presented by the Calhoun County Community Foundation, it serves as our annual fundraising event.
Each year Southern Gospel artists from across the Southeast come together for a one day Gospel music festival featuring live music, food vendors, and more. The event is held on highway 71 in Calhoun County, Florida between the town of Altha and the city of Blountstown.
The Calhoun County Community Foundation (CCCF) was founded in 2019 as a way to assist the rural communities of Calhoun County, Florida following the devastation caused by Hurricane Michael on October 10, 2018. It is a 501 c3 non profit organization.
All monies raised go back into the communities to directly benefit our citizens and support community pride. The organization also serves the community by promoting all that Calhoun County has to offer.
