In addition to non-stop music & entertainment, there’s so much to enjoy at the beautiful Atwood Lake Park. Atwood is home to a massive 1,500-acre lake where you can throw a picnic and hang out at the beach, swim with your friends, rent a pontoon boat, go fishing, hike on the trails throughout the park, take your kids to the playground, eat at the nearby Marina, and more! There’s so much to do. If you’ve never been to the festival or to Atwood, check out directions to the park and last year’s map.

Alive 5K

Race throughout the park in our second annual Alive 5K this summer at Alive 2019! Whether you’re ultra competitive, or just want a relaxing walk or jog around the park, all are welcome to join in on the fun. All proceeds will give deserving youth the opportunity to attend Alive who otherwise wouldn’t be able to.

The 5K will take place on Saturday, July 20 at Atwood Lake Park during Alive 2019 and registration will cost $25.

Stay tuned for information on 5K signups.


There’s no better way to commemorate your Alive experience than grabbing your official festival and artist merchandise. Stop by the Marketplace tent and check out our wide variety of vendors including festival and artist t-shirts and merchandise, a wide variety of hand-made items, jewelry, art, vinyls, and much more. Visit partner non-profits to connect with those impacting the world in incredible ways. If you’re a student, stop by the booths of the various colleges and universities to hear more about the schools.


One of our favorite times each year at Alive is the gathering of hundreds of people for baptism. Any and all are welcome to come share in this celebration and public declaration of our faith in Jesus. We’ll have pastors available for anyone who would like to be baptized, and you are welcome to have your own pastor baptize you, as well. Come join us for this powerful moment as we celebrate and reflect on Jesus’ finished work!

Baptisms will take place on Saturday, July 20 at 9am at the Beach.
