It’s a first at the Ark Encounter.
It’s a first for the Answers Center.
In fact, it’s a first for the world!
It’s a first based on Genesis 7:12—
“forty days and forty nights.”

It’s going to be “raining music” for forty days and forty nights at the Answers Center, our 2,500-seat, state-of-the-art auditorium at the Ark Encounter, August 2 through September 10. It’s the first time this kind of huge event has ever happened—in fact, it’s the biggest gospel music festival in the world.

More than 100 music artists (many are award-winning) and speakers, along with the Ark Encounter’s own resident trio, Southern Salvation and AiG speakers, will be presenting 40 days and nights of programs never experienced before. The Answers Center will be buzzing!

The Ark Encounter and the Creation Museum are the two leading Christian themed attractions in the world. We praise the Lord that he raised up donors to enable us to build the Answers Center at the Ark Encounter, south of Cincinnati. It includes a beautiful auditorium with state-of-the-art sound, a large stage, a stunning 70-by-22-foot LED screen, two huge lobbies, and a lower level with up to 10 conference rooms, a large green room, and a staging area with a special elevator platform for sets and equipment to be taken up to the stage. What a phenomenal facility to hold the world’s largest gospel music festival over a period of 40 days and nights!

This festival is presented by Abraham Productions and will feature multiple concerts daily from award-winning artists like The Isaacs, Ernie Haase and Signature Sound, Lynda Randle, Karen Peck & New River, The Hoppers, Triumphant, and many more of your favorites. There will be a mix of music styles, including southern gospel, country, bluegrass, and light contemporary Christian music.

In addition to over 110 concerts, you’ll also hear inspirational messages from sought-after speakers like Dr. David Jeremiah, Dr. Johnny Hunt, and other special guests, plus yours truly.

In addition to over 110 concerts, you’ll also hear inspirational messages from sought-after speakers like Dr. David Jeremiah, Dr. Johnny Hunt, and other special guests, plus yours truly. The daily concerts and talks are included with your Ark Encounter ticket. In fact, many people are purchasing the annual combo pass (individual or family), which gives unlimited visits to the Ark Encounter and the Creation Museum for a year and includes parking at both attractions, so they can attend several concerts.

Between concerts, there is so much to see and do at the Ark Encounter. Explore the huge Ark with its exhibits, visit Ararat Ridge Zoo’s exotic animals, enjoy family dining, ride zip lines reaching up to 50 mph, ride a camel (which is significantly slower!), and take a virtual “ride” at the Truth Traveler virtual reality experience, plus much more!

And of course, you won’t want to miss the spectacular Creation Museum 45 minutes away, with its laser projection planetarium system, 4D special effects theater, two floors of spectacular exhibits, a walk through the Bible, daily live programs, and 11 different areas of our beautiful botanical gardens, including waterfalls and bridges.
