December 2–6, 2017
Noon – 9pm
We invite you to join us in celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. We hope you may be moved, as the prophets of old once were when they pronounced Him:
King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Wonderful, Counsellor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace Revelation 19:16, Isaiah 9:6
The light that emanates from Him awakens hope, infuses with love, and softens anxious hearts to peace. This Christmas season, as you consider the Christ child, we pray that you might be more inclined to reach out with compassion to the weak, the sorrowful, and the misunderstood, and lift the loads of those whose burdens are heavy.
In our 30th year, and as the longest-running annual community-driven nativity exhibit, weʼre pleased to bring you over 350 nativities from more than 50 countries and over 100 exhibitors of many faiths. On display this year are the following collections: 30th Anniversary, European Traditionals, Porcelain to Paper, Latin America, International Carvings, Music and Song, Metals, Artists and Artisans.
In addition to nativities in artistic settings, the exhibit features a community service project, hands‑on activities, a Childrenʼs Room with crafts and costumes, daily marionette shows, and live holiday music.
