WCQR/Gray and 6,000 listeners enjoyed a hot July evening at Fun Fest with concerts by Zach Williams, Tenth Avenue North and Jeremy Camp! WCQR “fans” provided some relief for the listeners. Fun Fest is an annual event in Kingsport, TN which draws thousands of people. A Contemporary Christian concert was added to the main stage in 2012 and has since become the largest attended event during the week long Fun Fest.

Adam McCain, General Manager of WCQR said,”My favorite thing about FunFest is standing at the back of the football field and watching thousands of people worship together. This event brings our community together in a unique way; it’s people from all back grounds, different churches, but all worshiping Jesus Christ together. Just a couple years ago, there was a police officer there for security that accepted Christ because of the songs and Gospel that was shared that night.” 88.3 WCQR is located in the Tri-Cities of TN and is a station of Positive Alternative Radio.
