Hopefest 2018 is planned for Oct. 6-7 at Hope Lutheran Church in Friendswood.
The craft fair will have more than 30 vendors and a large silent auction on both days.
A tea room lunch will be offered and entertainment will be provided by Chara Christian Dance Academy.
Hours on both days are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday.
Sunday activities will include two worship services at 8 and 10 a.m., barbecue lunch, blood mobile, bingo games, smoothies, and free children’s games.
Hopefest is the church’s annual celebration and outreach to the community. All proceeds will fund four local charities as well as congregational initiatives such as their Costa Rica mission trip, Lighthouse Charity Team, and women’s retreat.
Hope Lutheran is located at 1804 S. Friendswood Drive.
