After 35 years, Disney World says it will no longer host the Night of Joy Christian music festival.

“Last year was our last event, ” a Disney spokesperson told CBN News.

The annual event held in early September started in 1983 and drew popular Christian artists like 

TobyMac, Amy Grant, Steven Curtis Chapman, MercyMe, and Kirk Franklin, Jars of Clay, 
hold concerts at the resort in Florida.

MercyMe and Tauren Wells are slated to perform later this year at Disney’s Eat to the Beat 

Concert Series. Ironically, Universal Studios Orlando also holds a two-night Christian concert 
around the same time in September each year.
Universal Orlando bills Rock The Universe as “Florida’s biggest Christian music festival” and this 
year’s lineup includes Casting Crowns, Jesus Culture, TobyMac and For King and Country.

Held since 1998, Universal Orlando says the annual event is “an unforgettable weekend of faith 

and fun.”
