What is the Treasure Valley God and Country Festival?
For over fifty years, Nampa, Idaho, has hosted a festival that honors God and Country just like its namesake. Faith-based speakers, Christian bands, public servants,military appreciation, civic awards, food and fellowship. and young patriots getting sworn into the military are just a few parts of the event.
How inspirational it is to watch young men and women swear their oath of loyalty to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. You can see a preview of this year's festival from our recap video of the 2018 Festival.
