Hope & Unity Festival is back!

Last year, our City opened the doors for us to bring hope, encouragement, and unity to our City in a time of need. Our response: the Hope & Unity Festival. This is a safe, family-friendly space for our community to gather together for an afternoon filled with joy, community, and fun. Through live concerts, giveaways, family activities, food, and more, we saw so many families impacted and people’s lives changed for the better.

This year, we’re so excited to announce our second ever Hope & Unity Festival! We believe that you’re going to leave this festival feeling encouraged, empowered, refreshed, and connected! Join us as we gather with our neighbors to bring hope to our City!

What to Expect

Hope & Unity Festival is full of tons of fun activities, a live concert, guest speakers, and incredible resources to help you and your family!

How to Get Involved

There are so many ways that you can get involved in this year’s Hope & Unity Festival to help us make it as impactful as possible.

This festival is all about bringing our community together to connect and be encouraged. Our heart is to promote hope and unity throughout West Haven.

So, invite your friends, family, and neighbors! You never know how your invitation could change someone’s life.
