A Growing Community Tradition

Welcome to the 17th Annual Community Nativity Festival. This year's Festival will again feature an all new design with the theme "Come Unto Bethlehem" based on the scripture in Luke 2:15 ". . . Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, . . " You will be transported back to the streets of Bethlehem with it's tents, taxpayers and costumed shopkeepers.

All nativities will be displayed within these tents and shops. We will once again feature a Children's Room and a separate Theatre room where the Nativity story will be portrayed through the medium of puppets.

Due to attendance demands and feedback, this year's display has been expanded to 5 days. The Nativity Festival will run from Dec. 2ndthrough Dec. 6th from 1 - 8:30pm each day.

Each evening we will feature "concerts" performed by different community groups including: Bell Choir of the Church of the Good Samaritan, Heart of the Valley Chamber Choir, CHS Jazz Choir,Carillon of Praise Hand bell choir, Gathering Winds Quartet, and the annual broadcast of the Christmas Devotional featuring the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. This year we are also pleased to announce a community Messiah Sing In with limited seating on Monday evening, Dec. 5th, at 7pm.

Check back often for concert schedules, puppet theater times, pictures featuring the transformation of the gym into the streets of Bethlehem and other pertinent information.

We are always looking for volunteers to display their own personal Nativity scene, perform musical background for the display area, and help with hosting, set up and clean up. Please feel free to contact us at
