LifeLight Hopes To Move In 2010

May 13, 2009, 4:49 PM by Courtney Zieller

LifeLight Hopes To Move In 2010
Every Labor Day weekend, thousands of people come from around the United States to enjoy the sounds of Christian music.

LifeLight's become the largest outdoor Christian music festival in the country, but event organizers are asking for help moving to a new location.

It draws crowds of people for as far as the eye can see. And if you didn't think the LifeLight festival could get any bigger, organizers hope to prove you wrong.

"Sioux Falls knows that events like LifeLight and LifeLight festival are good for the community," LifeLight CEO Alan Greene said.

Greene says events like this one brings in more than $10 million to the Sioux Falls area every year and as attendance grows so should its acreage.

"Perhaps there's a person out there who has land, a private citizen or corporation that would say this would work very well with your event," Greene said. 

320,000 people and more than 70 vendors can be hard to accommodate but LifeLight organizers hope they can find 200 plus acres for 2010 and beyond. 

"We are already getting calls from people excited saying, can we check this land out or is this something of an option?" Greene said.

Although they don't have any set options yet, they say now is the time to start planning for next year.

"We are in a time when people need hope, they need help and we believe the only real hope in through our relationship between Jesus Christ and his people when we come together," Greene said.

The group started a task force and will meet to discuss options Tuesday.

As for this year's LifeLight festival, it will still be held Labor Day weekend at Wild Water West in Sioux Falls.
