Bald Knob Cross of Peace
In 1937, 86 years ago this year, a small group of Southern Illinoisans gathered on top of Bald Knob Mountain to host an Easter Sunrise Service with hopes of bringing people together in a spirit of Christian unity. That same group later developed a vision for Bald Knob Cross. And today, the long-standing tradition continues, and that monument stands as a testament to their hard work and sacrifice.
The 86th Annual Easter Sunrise Service at Bald Knob Cross of Peace will be held at 6:30am on Sunday, April 17, 2022.
Over the last 86 years, it’s believed more than 300,000 attendees have attended this regional event. This year, the event will be both live-streamed and in-person with more than 2,000 attendees expected. Food trucks will also be on-site.
