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 two major music events happening this summer at the Ark Encounter: Faith Country Music Festival, June 16–18, 2022, and 40 Days and 40 Nights of Gospel Music, August 2–September 10, 2022. And both events are free with general admission!

Faith Country Music Festival 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, our 2,500-seat auditorium, 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.

Michael Lee

Michael Lee will be performing during our Faith Country Music Festival at the Ark Encounter.

All these concerts are included with Ark Encounter admission each day—what an incredible added value to your ticket! You can visit the life-size Noah’s Ark with your family—and enjoy great music from Christian country artists throughout your visit.

And if you visit on a Friday or Saturday from June 3–July 30, 2022, enjoy Gospel Music Weekends at Noah’s Village Stage (next to the Ark). These will be live outdoor events featuring a variety of Gospel artists. Families are going to love these toe-tapping worship weekends. Again, each weekend outdoor concert is included with your general Ark Encounter admission.

Gospel Weekends

And later this summer our second 40 Days and 40 Nights of Gospel Music (the biggest such Christan 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 of your favorites. It’s going to be an incredible time of worship!

Michael Lee

Popular Gospel music artists are returning to the Ark Encounter for 40 days and 40 nights!

As with our Faith Country Music Festival event, all of the 40 Days and Nights concerts are included with your general admission. For both events, 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.
