about Jfest

Jfest is the Tennessee Valley’s largest Christian Music Festival, and we’re excited about this year’s amazing lineup!

Coming back to the stage as our 2023 headliner, Crowder! We’re looking forward to the southern rock sounds from our headliner, as well as former frontman of Third Day, Mac Powell. Fan favorite, Cain, will also be back after a successful year of radio hits! Join us for a full lineup of great artists from start to finish, including our JRadio After Party with Social Club Misfits!

    Frequently Asked Questions

    General and Fanatics Parking at Chattanooga State opens first at 8:00am with shuttles starting at 9:00am for the general parking lot. The front gates at the festival will open at 11:00am with the first band going on stage at 11:30am.

    The fireworks show will start at 10:15pm immediately following Crowder’s set. The JRadio After Party will directly follow the fireworks at 10:30pm.

    General admission parking and the ‘Crown of Chattanooga’ shuttle buses at Jfest are free to use on the campus of Chattanooga State. Premier Parking is available for purchase (while supplies last) for the closest parking available to the Jfest entrance. A handicapped parking area is available at the Riverpark entrance to those with a handicap placard or tag.

    If you’d like to sit on something other than the grass at our festival, you’ll need to bring your own chair or blanket (chairs will only be provided for those in the Fanatics section). We will have a designated area for tent and umbrella usage at the festival with no canopies of any kind allowed near the front section of our viewing area. We love pets, but only trained service dogs or miniature horses that are harnessed, leashed or tethered may be present to help a person with a disability.

    We will have a variety of food options that should accommodate everyone, including gluten free and vegetarian options, but with your wristband you are able to come and go from the festival grounds as you please. No alcoholic drinks are allowed in the festival grounds. If needed, you may bring your own food and drinks.

    Jfest kid’s wristbands are for ages 5 to 11 years old and include access to our Kidsworld area. No wristband purchase is necessary for kids age 4 and under, and they can still access Kidsworld and our special toddler area in Kidsworld.

    Most vendors should have card machines available, but it might be a good idea to have cash on hand as there are no ATMs on site.

    We’re not sure off hand who your favorite artist is, but you can check the expected times for each artist to be on stage by clicking or tapping on their artist photo on this page. (Artists and performance times are subject to change)

    Jfest takes place outdoors and is a rain or shine event. If the weather gets stormy, pay attention to our social media for updates.

    As long as your Jfest wristband is still on your wrist, you can come and go as you please.

    Our Jfest team works very hard to make sure that you get your items in a timely manner while trying to keep up with the high volume. You should receive your wristbands in the mail before the week of Jfest, but call us at (423) 892-1200 or email us at info@jfest.com with any questions you may have.

    Chattanooga has a TON of things to do! Take the family to one of our great attractions, spend some time outdoors or take a drive through history! There are always things to do in our scenic city!


    The Tennessee Riverpark

    4501 Amnicola Hwy, Chattanooga, TN 37406

    We’re back at the Tennessee Riverpark for the third time in Jfest History! Parking is located at the adjacent lots at Chattanooga State.
