Welcome to BRITE - 2019

BRITE is a passionate celebration of the goodness of God. Though this event is hosted by Christians we believe this festival will have a positive impact on everyone who comes regardless of background or life philosophy.

With a great line up of live music, street food, testimonies, prayer experiences and fun activities we intend to light up the town annually with an unforgettable experience.
