The hills are alive with the sound of music—the hills of Williamstown, Kentucky, anyway! In addition to daily concerts with our phenomenal resident artists of TrueSong, we have three enjoyable music events happening this summer at the Ark Encounter: Gospel Music Weekends, Faith Country Music Festival, and 40 Days and 40 Nights of Gospel Music. And all these events are free with your general admission.
The Singing News and the Ark Encounter are partnering to bring quality gospel and faith country music to the Ark all summer long! Every Friday and Saturday from now through July 30, 2022, you can see incredible concerts on Noah's Village Stage at noon and 1 p.m. Don't miss the 20+ artists performing on Noah's Village Stage during the Gospel Music Weekends.
Visit the event page to see a full schedule of performances.
Faith Country Music Festival, which runs June 16–18, 2022, features at least five different artists performing each day (that’s 15 total!) on our outdoor stage and a headline event in the Answers Center each evening. Enjoy music from Carolina, The Jordan Family Band, Mitchell Whisnant, Kevin Kappler, Michael Lee, Gary Gibson, Deramus Family, Williamson Branch, Cody Hamm, Dale Rochell, Joe Richard, Ryan Watkins, David Timms, Troy Ervin, and Doug Mathis.
August 2–September 10, 2022, our second 40 Days and 40 Nights of Gospel Music (the biggest Christian music festival in the world) event takes place daily at the Ark Encounter and on select dates at the nearby Creation Museum as well, with over 120 total concerts. Guests will enjoy multiple concerts every day, featuring artists such as The Isaacs, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, Karen Peck & New River, Brian Free & Assurance, Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder, Jimmy Fortune, and many more favorites. It’s going to be an incredible time of worship.
All three concert events are included with your general admission. If you want to attend multiple concerts, consider purchasing our popular Bouncer Pass. This pass gives you three days of unlimited visits to both attractions within a seven-day period, along with special parking options. Or consider the Ultimate Bouncer Pass, which allows you to visit as many times as you would like for an entire year (plus free parking). Individual and family passes are available.
Don’t miss these three exciting events! Start planning your trip to the Ark Encounter today, and make sure you join us for a concert (or two . . . or more) while you are here.
