Living Nativity
& Pecan – Black Walnut Festival
at Shepherd’s Cross
December 8, 9, 10 & 15, 16, 17, 2022 Thursday, Friday & Saturday 10:00 am – 8:00 p.m.

The Living Nativity is held at an authentic, working sheep farm, and is nestled inside a cozy, Amish built barn. Step back in time and journey with the shepherds for a peaceful reflection upon the original Christmas night, when Christ was born.

Indoor activities include the manger scene, with live animals and character portrayals, musical performances, storytelling, a shepherd’s Christmas audio-visual story, bird feeder craft, coloring contest, tabletop games, the educational Farm Museum and Silo, fiber arts demonstrations, and a unique Hand-Crafted Gift Shop.

Outdoor activities include winter yard games, peaceful, professional Christmas light display, sheep, and alpacas reminiscent of the first Christmas pastoral scene, wagon rides and tours of the Bible Garden.

Enjoy a peaceful moment of reflection as this age-old scriptural story springs to life.

Final Manger Scene for the evening begins at 7:15.

Plan on spending 1 – 2 hours for this Christmas experience.

The Living Nativity will proceed even in the case of inclement weather.
