It’s time for the annual Kingdom Bound festival to take over Darien Lake once again. From Sunday through Wednesday, thousands of people from across the United States and Canada will visit Darien Lake to listen to some of the biggest names in Christian music including Skillet (Monday), TobyMac (Wednesday) and a special co-headlining concert featuring Michael W. Smith and Steven Curtis Chapman (Tuesday).

This year, Kingdom Bound Ministries is expanding its entertainment to live more fully to its mission statement: to promote the Gospel through the arts. To do this, it is renewing the festival’s dedication to visual arts. A new feature will be the Link for Art & Soul Workshops, which will teach anyone how to paint regardless of experience. There will be two sessions on both Tuesday and Wednesday, and the registration limit is 40 people. There is an $11 fee. At the end of the session, participants will walk away with a piece of their own art. Guests can book tickets in advance online at http://kingdombound.org/festival/painter or register on the grounds.

For general ticket information, visit www.kingdombound.org. One-day tickets for people not staying on the grounds are $48 for Sunday, and $72 for Monday through Wednesday. A four-day event pass is $167. Tickets also give visitors access to the amusement park. The festival grounds will open at 10:30 a.m. each day. Concerts are expected to go until 11 p.m.
