A Night in Bethlehem


We had almost 2,000 people visit Bethlehem in 2016. Keep an eye out for the dates for 2017. 


Holy Cross Lutheran Church is pleased to welcome the community to 'A Night in Bethlehem."
Come and experience the sights, sounds and smells of this free, interactive event for all ages.

visit our Bethlehem market vendors,

(Little travelers will be able to play with period-specific toys, taste food, and make projects!)
be a part of a first century census,
experience the sights of a Jewish city, including Roman soldiers, beggars, and tax collectors,
listen to the shepherd's story,
hear what the Rabbis have to say after consulting the ancient texts,
hear the prophet foretell the amazing arrival of the special baby Jesus,
go see Him for yourself,
touch live animals,
maybe buy a camel,
and more!


This is a FREE, interactive walk-through. It should take about 45 to 60 minutes once you start your tour. (Tour start times begin every few minutes, and wait times depend upon the number of people in the building.)

There should not be any waiting outside. Books and coloring activities area available for children while you are waiting for your turn to enter Bethlehem.

Come see what we have in store!
