About Winterfest

Winterfest is a Tennessee Episcopal Youth Retreat which provides a welcoming and safe space for high school students (grades 9th - 12th) to grow in their relationship with God and Christ through creative worship, service, music, love, friendship and understanding. It has served Episcopal youth across Tennessee since the 1990's, unifying youth from all over the state to live, play, talk, eat, sing and worship together as a community of faith.

This four day program includes group discussions, daily worship, praising God through dance and song, and playful skits.  To know more about the retreat, check out our promotional video, above.
