Christmas Under the Stars

This year we have an exciting new exhibit at Christmas Under the Stars. During this 2-hour Christmas Exhibit, families wander through the bustling Bethlehem marketplace and discover what life was like when Jesus was born.


Unlike your typical “living Nativity,” everyone will create unique keepsakes as they interact with local shopkeepers who share the Christmas story. And…they’ll love talking to Mary and Joseph in The Stable—and hearing about the miracle of Jesus’ birth.

There will also be a FREE PETTING ZOO! You can interact with around 20 animals including, goats, rabbits, a pig, ducks, chickens and even a donkey!


You may pick from TWO available time slots.There are only 70 child tickets available for each time slot. Each child will need a ticket. Parents & guardians will attend, but do not need to reserve a ticket.
