CyLife Church to Celebrate Community and Compassion at CyFest in Cypress

May 14 2024

On Saturday, May 18, the Cypress community is set to come together for a not to be missed annual event, CyFest 2024. Organized by CyLife Church, it is slated to take place from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM at their campus on 20611 Tuckerton Road, offering an exciting mix of great food, live music, fun activities, and more importantly, a chance to support a worthy cause.

Foodies will be in for a treat with the annual BBQ cook-off featuring tantalizing brisket and pulled pork. A variety of international cuisines will also be on offer from food trucks and pop-up vendors, promising something for every palate. Children will enjoy activities that include face painting, bounce houses, soccer matches, and other engaging games guaranteed to provide abundant fun.

But CyFest 2024 is not just about fun and entertainment. It carries a larger mission. This year, the festival aims at supporting the "Houston Welcomes Refugees" initiative. The objective is to provide Welcome Kits to the warehouse of this local outreach partnership that aids in the ease of resettlement for the thousands of international refugees arriving in the greater Houston area.

According to data from the Migration Policy Institute, the Houston area is one of the prime destinations for international refugees entering the United States on asylum. The organizers of CyFest 2024 believe it is their duty and opportunity to extend warmth and compassion to these global neighbors and assist them with care and community. CyFest hopes to raise community awareness and foster collaboration with neighbors to join the mission and cater to the needs of the growing refugee communities.

The event is open to all, inviting everyone to experience and enjoy the sense of community that defines CyFest. In partnership with organizations such as Houston Welcomes Refugees, Eyes on Me, Inc., Langham Creek YMCA, and Primeway Federal Credit Union, CyFest 2024 promises an event that combines enjoyment with the spirit of giving back to the community. Be sure to mark your calendars and bring a lawn chair for an event that is as much about good times as it is about goodwill.
