6-time Dove Award Winner Lauren Daigle Leads Line-up of Top Christian Artists Set to Rock Silver Dollar City’s Young Christians’ Weekend

March 31 - April 2

Young Christians’ Weekend is a special event deeply embedded in the culture of Silver Dollar City, the internationally-awarded 1880s-style theme park in Branson, Missouri. Entering into its 42nd season, Young Christians’ Weekend is a three-day event, March 31-April 2, where kids of all faiths, or little/no faith connection, come together to be encouraged, entertained and inspired to find faith-based purpose. This year’s line-up of top Christian recording artists includes The Museum, Building 429 and 6-time Dove Award winner and Grammy nominee Lauren Daigle, with a Friday evening kick-off concert with 7eventh Time Down. Workshops are available on Saturday and two worship services are held on Sunday.  

The event stemmed from a vision of Silver Dollar City founders to share a mission of operating in a manner consistent with Christian values and ethics. Today Young Christians’ Weekend is one of the longest- running and largest- attended events of its kind in the country.
