Gaither Fest – The 2014 Event
Going on years of musical greatness, Gaither Fest is again occupying the Myrtle
Beach Convention Center to bring another amazing year of talent, musicality, emotionality, and friendship. With this year's
Gaither Fest spanning two amazing days of fun near the beach, 2014 will be the greatest festival yet.
Held in the beautifully
majestic Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Gaither Fest is only enhanced by the area's beautiful scenery and bucolic small town
feel. The spirit of Myrtle Beach clearly lends itself to the festival, as many attendees describe the yearly event as a relaxing
and rejuvenating event where fellow audience members form a strong community around the musical talent. Late October has never
been more exciting. Grab your ticket and prepare your ear drums, because Gaither Fest 2014 is going to be the best weekend
of music you will have this entire year.
