Senior Pastor Rev. Bill Jenkins points out the location of the First Annual League City Christian Music Festival. The two-day event is scheduled for April 27-28, and will be on the new property recently purchased by League City United Methodist Church, at the corner of Calder and League City Parkway.

“Save the date” announcements are usually reserved for weddings; however folks within a hundred miles of League City are marking their calendars now for a music festival scheduled in late April. The First Annual League City Christian Music Fest will be held Friday and Saturday, April 27-28th on property recently purchased by League City United Methodist Church.

“The site is perfect for an event like this” Senior Pastor Bill Jenkins said. “League City Parkway is central to our community and the surrounding cities, we can offer free parking, and there will be plenty of room for all the events we have planned.”

Committee chair Jay Flowers is quick to point out that there will be something for everyone at the Music Fest. “We’ll have non-stop music virtually the entire time, along with events for the children, face painting, special demonstrations, refreshments, arts and crafts and more,” he said.

Friday evening begins with the Texas Po’Boys. They are members of the Bay Area Gospel Music Association and have played together for 15 years. They will be followed by the headliners, The English Brothers, who are indeed brothers. The English Brothers are known for their combination of Southern Gospel and humor.

Up and coming performer and songwriter Brandon Heath kicks off Saturday evening. He will be opening for The Swift, a popular four piece band that recently released its third national album.

Of special interest is the growing list of local performers that have signed on to share the spotlight. League City’s own Skyler Yancy and praise and worship band “A Few Small Fish” join up with performers from Santa Fe, Clear Lake, Galveston and Lake Jackson. For the adrenaline junkies, there will be demonstrations of extreme motorcycles, martial arts and gymnastics.

Ticket pricing is varied, depending on what you want to attend. A two day pass is $25 for adults, $15 for ages 4-15, and those three and under get in free. Day passes for either Friday or Saturday are also available. To purchase tickets, go to the festival’s website,

The League City Music Fest is just one of the events that has come out of the incredible growth that League City United Methodist Church is experiencing. “We are actively looking for different ways to reach out to our community,” Associate Pastor Kay Alewine says. “This is just the tip of the iceberg!”

For information on the First Annual League City Christian Music Fest, go to the new website, or visit the church’s website at League City United Methodist Church currently meets at 1411 Main Street, one block east of Interstate 45. The new property is at the corner of Calder Road and League City Parkway.
