Sonshine Festival is a Christian music festival held annually since 1982. In Willmar, Minnesota through 2014, festival organizers announced its relocation to Somerset, Wisconsin for 2015 onward because of an inability to attract sufficient people to the original location.[1][2]

A member of the Christian Festival Association, Sonshine has featured Christian musical artists from around the world. In 2012, the Newsboys recorded their live album Newsboys Live in Concert: God's Not Dead at the festival.[3] Sonshine is produced by Creation Festivals.[4]
