2024 Memorial Day Weekend Community Celebration

Join us at 4:00 p.m. on Monday, May 27, 2024, at the Rockingham County Fairgrounds in Harrisonburg, VA, for our 9th Annual Memorial Day Community Celebration for a marvelous opportunity to come together with friends throughout the area and celebrate faith, family, friendship, and freedom! The highlight of the day will be a performance by Dr. Lew Sterrett and Sermon on the “Mount,” a professional horse trainer. For over 30 years Dr. Lew has combined his expertise as a professional horse trainer, a certified youth and family counselor, a licensed pastor, and a successful business executive to produce one of the most unique events in the Christian realm.

Admission is FREE, so bring your lawn chair, invite your family and friends, and get ready for an exciting, entertaining day!


We are looking for individuals who are willing to be the hands and feet of Jesus and better serve our wonderful community during the celebration. Serving does not mean that you will not be able to enjoy and partake in the activities; if you want to serve for one or two hours, that is perfectly fine. We are asking for your help in any of the following areas: KidZone helper and inflatable games attendant, cruise-in registration, parking attendant, photographer, resource table attendant, security, and food service. We are also looking for people to serve as counselors when individuals wish to make the greatest decision of their lives – to make a commitment to Jesus. We are offering counselor training on Tuesday, May 21 at 6:00 p.m. via Zoom. It takes a lot of Christ-like minded people on a soul saving mission to host an event of this magnitude.  If you would be willing to stand shoulder to shoulder and serve with us, please click here.


The Memorial Day Community Celebration would not be possible without generous sponsors. Securing the venue, contracting with performers and artists, providing games and activities for kids, giving a free barbeque sandwich per cruise-in car, and advertising for a free-of-charge event carries a large pricetag. Please join us in thanking the following sponsors.
