About Gospelfest

The New Alpha Missionary Baptist Church has a vision: one that binds and embraces our differences, illuminating our hopes, dreams, and cares. In an era of conflict, misunderstanding, and polarization around diversity and differences, GospelFest is a bright, shining light.

This event originated from a spiritual quest to celebrate Black History Month. GospelFest has now become a tradition in the Greater Burlington Community in honor of Black Heritage. This is one of the few multicultural events that bring people together from across the state for such a positive reason.

GospelFest is a Christian music ministry. GospelFest is a transformative experience for choir members, attendees, and all who are part of this annual event of celebration. We come together year after year, growing in numbers, to sing Gospel music which carried people through generations of slavery and persecution. GospelFest traditionally features the New Alpha Missionary Baptist Church Gospel Choir and the Interdenominational Burlington Ecumenical Gospel Choir.

The Burlington Ecumenical Gospel Choir is made up of singers from various churches and individuals from around the state of Vermont. New Alpha Missionary Baptist Church is a friendly church. It’s a church that wants to sing praises to the Lord, create fellowship opportunities for the community and touch lives in a significant and positive way. GospelFest allows us to do all of these things and more. We welcome you!
