During the week of Sept. 9-15 over 40,000 Southern gospel music fans, representing at least 40 states and more than a half dozen foreign countries will converge in the city of Louisville, Ky. for the 55th annual National Quartet Convention.
This year, many of the most popular names in southern gospel music will be featured throughout the seven-day event. In addition to the many popular quartets, trios, duets and soloists featured throughout the week, some of the most prominent keynote speakers in the country will be featured.
The National Quartet Convention is the only event of the year where fans can see and hear their favorite groups at a single event, then meet group members and purchase music, videos, clothing apparel and much more at any one of the 500 exhibit booths which span throughout 175,000 square feet. Southern gospel music lovers can enjoy their favorite music all day long, as music spectaculars begin each morning and continue until nearly midnight each evening.
Nightly concerts will be held at the Kentucky Fair and Expo Center’s Freedom Hall, with afternoon concerts and worship services also scheduled throughout the grounds of the Fair and Expo Center.
