Nashville, TN (October 22, 2009) - America's largest Christian music and teaching festivals, the Creation Festivals, announce a new venue for the annual Creation Northwest. Creation 2010 is “going green” with this exciting new move. After twelve amazing years in the high desert and extreme heat at the Gorge Amphitheater; Creation Festival Northwest is moving to the picturesque, green valley at Enumclaw Expo Center in Enumclaw, Washington.

The Enumclaw Expo Center, also known as the home to the King County Fair, will be the perfect setting to carry on the Creation tradition of paying “Tribute to our Creator." Generations have come to love and cherish the seclusion of the Creation Festivals - the Enumclaw Expo Center carries on this tradition with spectacular views of Mt. Rainier and the beautiful landscape of the great Northwest.

"We are extremely excited to see God provide this great new venue for Creation Festival Northwest. God continually amazes us with His grace and provision. What a gorgeous place with Mt. Rainier as the backdrop for the camping areas and the Fairgrounds;" says Pastor Harry Thomas, co-founder and director of the Creation Festivals. "As Creation 2010 Northwest embraces the beauty of Mt. Rainier, green valleys and cooler temperatures, we are believing for the Lord to do great things for the thousands in attendance.”

The Enumclaw Expo Center in Enumclaw, Washington is conveniently accessible to many of the Northwest's major metropolitan cities. This close proximity will allow for a better commute for fans and ticket purchasers, while putting major highways, hotels and the like within a short driving distance.

The new dates for Creation 2010 Northwest are July 21 - July 24, 2010. This summer will prove to be another stellar festival, as Creation provides an experience like none other with jam packed entertainment,

world renowned speakers, exciting festival extras, and much more.
