HopeFest 2019

Southside Hope and WCOH sponsored HopeFest on Saturday, September 14, 2019 from 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. on the grounds of Watkins Elementary School, 1520 Watkins Road, Columbus, OH  43207.

This free public event included live performances, free concessions, education on housing issues, and fun activities for all ages.

Together we celebrated why Far South Columbus is a great place to live, work, play and worship.

HOPEFest is a community festival created to connect neighbors to each other, to valuable community resources, and to growth opportunities in Far South Columbus. See you again in 2020!

Many community resources were also on hand to share available programs and opportunities for assistance. 


This event was sponsored by a United Way Neighborhood Partnership Grant, Southside Hope Community Development Corporation, Wesley Church of Hope, and the Legal Aid Society.
