Bridge House / Grace House’s Sober Fest aims to raise awareness that recovery is possible and fun in recovery is achievable; while also benefiting our NO-COST, long-term residential substance use disorder treatment programs. Founded on the principle that no one can attain and maintain sobriety without having their basic needs met, Bridge House / Grace House treats predominantly homeless, indigent, uninsured and/or unemployed men and women. In 2021, we treated 861 individuals.

NO OUTSIDE FOOD & DRINKS – support our local food vendors and Help Keep Sober Fest Free with your beverage purchases. Chairs are welcome. Weapons are prohibited.
