The Sts. Philip and James playfield 1160 East 213 Street (off Boston Road) in the Bronx will once again exchange its usual sound of children at play for a top-rated presentation of the gospel in varied art forms and demonstrations of generosity on August 15, 16 and 17.
The event, Fun In The Son, a Gospel Festival, is a product of Glory Music Inc. of Jamaica and is the nation’s premier gospel festival.
It’s stated objective is “creating a FREE family summer festival event that will bring a greater degree of unity to the whole community of faith and business as well as all people of diversity beliefs and cultures through music, help resources and ministry through the word of God!”
The event offers a slate of international and top-rated artistes including Carlene Davis, Eddie James, Glacia Robinson, Sean Sobers and the dynamic African Rhythms & Afro Praise. Some amazing and talented young people will take you through their performing arts set slated for Friday August 15th and Saturday August 16th
A Children’s Village offering rides, candy and school supplies will also be in place for the young guests. Adults will have access to prayer, bibles and care packages among other paraphernalia. The bustling variety of vendor-display booths is geared towards heightening the patrons’ interest.

Paul Peart and in collaboration with Glory Music.
