Kingdom Bound comes to Darien Lake

Returning again this year, Kingdom Bound Festival. This music festival is held every year at Darien Lake located near Buffalo, NY. Below is how it all began.

“Kingdom Bound started as an idea in the hearts and minds of two people from Buffalo, New York: Fred Caserta, a booking agent and concert promoter, and Mike Caputy, a local musician. In 1986, they presented a concert featuring Sheila Walsh, Russ Taff, and Mylon LeFevre. Following this concert, Kevin Ketcham, Special Events Coordinator for Darien Lake Theme Park, in rural Darien Center, New York, halfway between Buffalo and Rochester, presented them with the idea of a Christian music day in the park. The first Kingdom Bound debuted on a chilly October day in 1987. Even though it was 39 degrees, 6,000 people showed up for the three day event, and had a great time in the Lord. Speakers at the first Kingdom Bound included Will McFarlane, Michael Peace, Larry Norman, Rick Cua, and Jeri Barricks. Other notable talents at Kingdom Bound 1987 included Mylon LeFevre & Broken Heart, Twila Paris, Steve Taylor, White Heart, and Randy Stonehill. In 1987, a three day pass cost between $24 and $31. After its October debut, Kingdom Bound wisely moved to the end of August for 1988 and many years to follow. In 1989, a children’s ministry, deaf ministry, and the worship tent were added.” Source: www.kingdomboung.org
