It’s Almost Time for the World’s Largest Christian Music Festival!

It’s almost here! In less than three weeks, our 40 Days and 40 Nights of Gospel Music event begins at the Ark Encounter. That’s right, August 2–September 10, 2022, Ark Encounter will once again be welcoming your favorite Southern Gospel, bluegrass, country (and more) artists for the world’s largest Christian music festival!

Last year the event was an incredible success—and now it’s even bigger!

Last year the event was an incredible success—and now it’s even bigger! This year 150 artists will be performing 120 concerts, and also new this year, concerts will not only be at the Ark Encounter each day but at the Creation Museum (45 minutes from the Ark) each Wednesday. And, just like last year, this event is free with Ark Encounter or Creation Museum admission!

Enjoy music from your favorite gospel music artists and groups, including,

Ricky SkaggsThe IsaacsTriumphantErnie Haase & Signature SoundKaren Peck & New RiverBrian Free & AssuranceAnd many, many more, including our own resident artists, TrueSong

And don’t miss our Sunday afternoon praise and worship times at the Ark Encounter. It’s really going to be a wonderful time of worshipping the Savior!

Of course, music is just part of what you’ll enjoy when you visit. You can also tour the life-size Ark Encounter and the amazing exhibits at the Creation Museum, explore the grounds, take your children or grandchildren to the playground, meet the zoo animals, ride our unique carousel (opening beginning of August at the Ark), go “back in time” in our virtual reality experience at the Ark, or, if you’re especially daring, ride the ziplines or challenge yourself to an aerial adventure.

Oh, and I haven’t even mentioned the daily speaking from people such as Dr. Tim Hill, Dr. Robert Jeffress, Pastor Javon Ruff, Pastor C. T. Townsend, me, and more. And there are daily programs with live animals, hands-on activities, and more.

Whew—there is a lot happening at the Ark and museum, and the world’s largest Christian music festival is going to be an incredible 40 days and 40 nights!

This event is just a few weeks away, so mark your calendars and be sure to check out the full itinerary! 40 Days and 40 Nights is sponsored by Christian Health Care Ministries, Inspiration Cruises & Tours, Singing News, and Abraham Productions. You can plan your visit at, where you can also find discounted hotel stays with our partner hotels.

All of the concerts and speaking events are included free with Ark Encounter admission (or Creation Museum admission, for the concerts taking place there). To attend multiple concerts, be sure to consider our new 3-Day Bouncer Pass, which gives you three days of unlimited visits to both attractions within one week or our Ultimate Bouncer Pass for a year of “bouncing” between attractions—it’s a great way to make sure you don’t miss any of your favorite artists. And, remember, children 10 and under are free for 2022.

The Ark Encounter and Creation Museum are the two leading world-class Christian themed attractions in the world.
