If you’re planning to visit the world-class Ark Encounter over Memorial Weekend, you’re in for a special treat. Aside from enjoying the full-size Ark, its three decks of exhibits, the beautiful grounds, and the Ararat Ridge Zoo, you’ll also have an opportunity to enjoy a Legacy Five concert and comedy by “God’s Comic,” Brad Stine, after you delight in a delicious dinner (a ticketed event that you can purchase at the Ark Encounter when you visit).

Now we do have other daily events taking place in our recently opened Answers Center included with your entrance ticket. We’re so excited that the Answers Center, our 2,500-seat multi-purpose auditorium, is now open and we can use it for daily events at the Ark Encounter. These events include daily showings of New Beginning (an AiG short film), a daily speaker, and concerts, such as southern gospel group Southern Salvation. In addition to daily events to add to your Ark experience, we also have certain special events, such as showings of Pure Flix films.

Dinner, Comedy, and Music

But Memorial Weekend, kicking off the busy summer season, we have something extra special planned. If you are visiting that weekend (Friday, May 24–May 27), we invite you to obtain the tickets for an evening of food, music, and comedy (the Legacy Five concerts begin May 24, with the Brad Stine comedy performances starting May 25).

Each evening, beginning at 5:30, our talented culinary team at the Ark Encounter will be serving a meal with your choice of carved tri-tip beef with horseradish cream sauce, herb roasted chicken with parsley potatoes, or coconut shrimp stir fry with rice. You’ll also enjoy delicious sides and a wide variety of desserts. Trust me, our chef makes delicious food—you won’t want to miss this dinner!

After dinner, prepare to laugh as Brad Stine, sometimes known as “God’s Comic,” takes the stage. Brad is a hilarious, family-friendly stand-up comic. After his performance, settle back and enjoy a concert from the award-winning Southern Gospel group, Legacy Five.

“Dinosaurs and More” with Ken and Buddy

We also have another special event coming up. On June 1, my good friend Buddy Davis—a very talented singer and songwriter—will be teaming up with me for “Dinosaurs and More—The True History of the World,” an hour-and-a-half of music, learning, and all sorts of fun (you never know what might happen when Buddy and I get together!). This is designed for kids, families, and individuals of all ages—everyone is sure to enjoy it.

This event is free with admission to the Ark Encounter. It will be entertaining for everyone as you sing along with Buddy’s amazing tunes and learn about dinosaurs from a biblical worldview.

So, no matter when you are visiting this summer, be sure to check our events page. That way you will not miss any of the exciting events taking place during your visit. Go to ArkEncounter.com/events.
