Music and More at the Ark Encounter

Sponsored Content

The Ark Encounter in Williamstown, Kentucky (just south of Cincinnati, Ohio), is an excellent destination for your group, and summer is an extra-special time for music lovers. In addition to the life-size Ark with three decks of exhibits, an exotic zoo, live presentations, gorgeous botanical gardens, and many other offerings, the Ark Encounter has a host of summer concerts and music festivals—all of which are free with your admission!


The Ark Encounter’s resident music artists, TrueSong, offer frequent concerts at the attraction—both during special events and on ordinary days. With their signature smooth harmonies and uplifting vocals, TrueSong has become a favorite with guests at the attraction, and their music can now be heard on Christian radio as well. Concerts by TrueSong include a variety of hymns, bluegrass/country gospel, and original songs.

Faith Country and Bluegrass Music Festival

Similar to the popular 40-40 event later in the summer, the four-day Faith Country and Bluegrass Music Festival features multiple daily concerts. Outdoor performances begin at 11 a.m. each day, and the main concerts—held inside the Answers Center auditorium—begin at 4 p.m. and feature headlining artists with live bands.

Gospel Music Weekends at the Ark

Every Friday and Saturday during the months of June and July, the Ark Encounter and Singing News are partnering to bring gospel and faith country music to the Ark’s outdoor stage. More than 20 artists will take their turns performing during these nine weekends of quality music! Concerts are held at noon and 1 p.m. at Noah’s Village Stage.

40 Days and 40 Nights of Christian Music

As Gospel Music Weekends at the Ark ends, the world’s largest Christian music festival begins! From August 1–September 9, 2023, Abraham Productions will host 40 Days and 40 Nights of Christian Music at the Ark Encounter and its sister attraction, the Creation Museum. Over 120 total concerts spanning five music genres will be performed by favorite Christian artists such as Gold City, Selah, Karen Peck & New River, CAIN, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, Guy Penrod, Jason Crabb, and many more. In addition to these daily concerts, an inspirational message will be delivered each evening by popular speakers such as Tim Lovelace, Dennis Swanberg, and Ken Ham! Visit for more details.
