A Summer of Music at the Ark Encounter

by Ark Encounter on May 2, 2024

We’ve got a busy summer of music planned at the Ark Encounter with three exciting events scheduled. Ranging from a few days to several weeks long, these music festivals will bring talented artists to the stage to share their hearts and God-given talents with us.

These events are all included with your Ark Encounter admission, so plan your trip now to be encouraged and to take advantage of all the summertime fun!

Gospel Music Weekends

We’re kicking off summer with our Gospel Music Weekends at the Ark, cohosted with our partner Singing News. This event begins May 31 and runs through July 27, 2024. Every Friday and Saturday of these uplifting weekends, over 20 gospel and faith country artists—including Tate Emmons, The Joyaires, Avenue, and more—will join us outdoors at Noah’s Village Stage.

Faith Country and Bluegrass Music Festival

Faith-based country and bluegrass singers will join us June 12–15, 2024, for our second music event of the summer, hosted again in partnership with Singing News. Each day will begin at 11:00 a.m. with an outdoor concert held at Noah’s Village Stage and will conclude with a headlining artist performing inside our Answers Center auditorium at 4:00 p.m.

40 Days and 40 Nights of Christian Music Festival

Finally, the much-anticipated world’s largest Christian music festival will take place July 30–September 7, 2024. Over 150 music artists, bands, and inspirational speakers will take to the stage during this event, which is spread out over an incredible 120+ concerts. Each day will begin with a 12:00 p.m. concert held at the outdoor Noah’s Village Stage. At 4:00 p.m., the fun and encouragement will move inside the Answers Center auditorium for the main concert event.
