Exciting News & Updates from UCGIA

Update: Feast of Tabernacles

February 17, 2011

All of the United States Feast sites for 2011 have been secured, and now we are finishing up the housing contracts. We want to be fair with hotels and anticipating attendance is always a challenge. This year it is even more so. We don’t want to overbook and disappoint our traditional, loyal housing establishments.

In addition, we are planning four satellite sites throughout the country. They will not initially be open for transfer, but are being established specifically to accommodate nearby members who cannot drive longer distances. If capacity remains after registration, transfers will be allowed.

In the past, the March-April issue of United News has provided descriptions of all United Church of God Feast sites. This year that information will only be printed in the Festival Planning Brochure. This will reduce duplication of information that has typically been distributed only a few weeks apart. It will also conserve manpower.

International sites are still being finalized. For the most current updates, please go to You can also sign up for updates to be sent by e-mail or to your mobile device.

  1. Please take me off your mailing list. I no longer wish to be associated with the United Church of God.

  2. Thank you for the update and for all the hard work done to set up the Feast sites. The satellite sites sound like a good idea for those unable to make it to other sites.

  6. I’m curious about the northeast feast site. On FOT it says “to be determined” and on Realtime it says Virginia Beach. Does anyone know if there is to be a site in the northeast?
