Each September, Walt Disney World holds its annual Night of Joy event. The popular event is a Christian music festival that invites Guests to celebrate with fun and fellowship. This year’s event will take place on Friday, September 8 and Saturday, September 9 at the ESPN Wide World of Sports.

Last year was the first year for the event to be held at the ESPN Wide World of Sports and because of that, the event was able to be expanded with Guests having more options than ever with ample seating at indoor and outdoor venues, amazing performances on multiple stages, including Champion Stadium, activities and more.

This year, the Night of Joy event will be hosted by Matthew West.

Performers for each night include:

September 8

  • TobyMac
  • MercyMe
  • Natalie Grant
  • Danny Gokey
  • Matt Maher
  • Colton Dixon
  • Rend Collective
  • Zach Williams

September 9

  • Amy Grant
  • Steven Curtis Chapman
  • Kirk Franklin
  • Jordan Feliz
  • David Crowder
  • Jeremy Camp
  • Tye Tribbett


Night of Joy is a hard-ticketed event. Tickets for Night of Joy are expected to go on sale in early June. Stay tuned to the blog for further information about this year’s special event.
