It’s the week of Thanksgiving—and that means our spectacular Christmas programs begin soon! Both events begin this Friday, November 26, at 5 p.m. here in N. Kentucky! We’re so excited to welcome thousands of families over the Christmas season to our two attractions for our free family Christmas programs. And it all begins Friday!

ChristmasTime at the Ark Encounter and ChristmasTown at the Creation Museum have become family traditions for both local and out-of-state families who love coming to experience the beautiful lights, Christmas music, live nativity, and more.
