Festival of Wisdom and Grace 2021: A Conference for Finding Purpose and Renewal in the Second Half of Life

07/23/21. The Festival of Wisdom and Grace will be held at Lake Junaluska, NC on August 2-5, 2021.

How do we flourish as we age? How do we navigate transitions, live into our talents and passions, cultivate our relationship with Christ, engage topics that matter with courage and conviction, and care for our loved ones struggling with memory loss? In this conference, we’ll hear world-class speakers and leaders address these topics and more as we seek to live abundantly in the second half of life.

About Lake Junaluska

The mission of Lake Junaluska is to be a place of Christian hospitality where lives are transformed through renewal of soul, mind, and body. This hospitality is provided to ALL persons, without discrimination.

Ideally situated in a mountain valley, Lake Junaluska Conference and Retreat Center provides a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Escape to one of our lakeside hotels or relax on a front porch rocking chair, gazing at the lake and the panoramic vistas of the Blue Ridge and Great Smoky Mountains. You’ll enjoy comfortable summers, followed by glorious falls. While winter’s snowfall blankets local mountains, our valley is mostly mild and easy to access. Spring is always spectacular with the abounding beauty of trees and flowers.

Steeped in Wesleyan heritage, Lake Junaluska first opened its doors at Stuart Auditorium in 1913. We are historically connected to The United Methodist Church and open to the public year round for conferences, group retreats, recreation, weddings, reunions, family events and vacations.

For more than 100 years, we have been a home for people seeking relaxation, recreation and renewal. Whether for a weekend getaway or week-long conference let us be your place in the mountains. Come and join us this year!
