Ark Encounter Puts on 40 Days and 40 Nights of Southern Gospel Music
Abraham Productions is putting on the “world’s largest Christian music festival” at the Ark Encounter south of Cincinnati, Ken Ham, founder and CEO of Answers in Genesis, said on the “Todd Starnes Show” Monday.
The event “40 Days and 40 Nights of Gospel Music” launched on Aug. 2 and goes through Sept. 10, featuring 150 artists, including Southern gospel music bands like Ernie Haase & Signature Sound.
“It’s a tremendous way of bringing people here who have never been here before,” Ham told host Todd Starnes. “They enjoy the music and it’s a great way of presenting to them, too, God’s word and the message of the gospel, which is what we’re all about as Christians.”

The big festival also features speakers like Dr. Robert Jeffress, the pastor of First Baptist Dallas and the official chaplain of the Todd Starnes Radio Show.
The Ark Encounter is the largest attraction in Kentucky and the Creation Museum is like a “walk through the Bible,” Ham said.
In addition to the music, guests can enjoy a zoo with live animal programs every day, zip lining, a virtual reality ride, and much more. Click here to view the daily schedule for the big music festival.
