Peru Hope Fest


Peru, IN – Sometimes the pressures of daily life, obligations to work, school and home, can be overwhelming. That unexpected bill or lack of money for everyday needs can also get you down. It is easy to get depressed and lose hope. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Pastor Kevin Palmer and the Congregation of Calvary Temple have scheduled Peru Hope Fest where they plan to share an uplifting, inspirational message of hope with everyone in our community.

The Peru Hope Fest will take place on August 12 through August 15 beginning at 6:00 p.m. each evening. The four-day event is completely free and open to the public. It will be held at the First Farmers Bank and Trust Amphitheater located at upper Maconaquah Park.

“Each evening there will be prizes, live music, games for the kids and a motivational message of hope,” said Pastor Palmer. “The members of our congregation will be there to meet and  serve the community with a message of hope.”
