JoyFest Will Be Held at Carowinds in Charlotte, N.C. on May 28 and at Kings Dominion in Doswell, Virginia on July 16

HIGH POINT, N.C. – December 15, 2010 – A summer evening of great gospel music and thrilling amusement park rides can only be described as a JoyFest, and that is exactly what Premier Festivals will present next May 28, 2011 at Carowinds in Charlotte, N.C. and on July 16, 2011 at Kings Dominion in Doswell, Va.
JoyFest, the annual celebration of black gospel and urban music and entertainment, will feature Kirk Franklin, Fred Hammond, Marvin Sapp, comedian Sinbad, Canton Jones and, back by popular demand, the official JoyFest MC Comedian Bone Hampton, plus other acts to be announced soon.  A JoyFest ticket includes, not only a seat to the exclusive evening of music, inspiration and laughs, but also an amusement park ticket for admission to all the rides and amusements at both JoyFest locations.
“JoyFest has become one of the largest premier Gospel events in the Nation.  This year is no exception as JoyFest will host one of the best lists of artists and comedians in its entire history!” said Richard Young of Premier Festivals, which produces and promotes JoyFest.
JoyFest at both Carowinds and Kings Dominion have previously experienced capacity attendance at the parks and JoyFest 2011 is expected to be another huge event.  Tickets are now on sale at  www.ticketmaster.com and detailed ticket information is available at www.joyfest.com, including early bird and group discount information.  The Kings Dominion JoyFest event is also offering special holiday discounts through January 31, making a JoyFest ticket a tremendous gift-giving opportunity this Christmas.
Carowinds is called the thrill capital of the Southeast.  The 122-acre amusement park is the home of 232-foot-high Intimidator, the tallest, fastest, and longest coaster in the Southeast and the Afterburn, consistently ranked as one the top steel coasters in the world.
With more than 400 acres, Kings Dominion is home to more than 60 rides, shows and attractions. The park features 15 world-class roller coasters making it one of the largest coaster collections on the East Coast. In 2010, Kings Dominion introduced the Intimidator 305; at 305 feet-tall and over 90 miles per hour, it is the tallest and fastest coaster of its type on the East Coast.
JoyFest is one of Premier Festival’s most successful annual concert series and is produced in partnership with Cedar Fair Entertainment, the industry leader in family-oriented amusement park properties in North America.
