About Us

Why SpiritFest?

The brainchild of First Presbyterian Church, SpiritFest was conceived after congregation members became eager to get more involved in supporting Historic Downtown Clarksville - or in the words of Rev. Gregory L. Glover, the church's pastor, to "bless our community."
Glover explained, church members observed that people waited in front of their church for a long time for the parade to begin, without amenities or anything to occupy the children. This prompted the creation of SpiritFest.
