“We are so pleased to be able to bring the live show back for our 40th anniversary,” said Stephen
Hays, Director. “For the past two years due to Covid, we had to get creative in presenting online versions of the festival for our many patrons. This year we will be welcoming our audience
back in our sanctuary for this deeply moving and entertaining experience. Many of the
audience’s favorite characters will be returning to this production and we will have a few new
ones joining our medieval town.”

The festival is an annual rendition of the medieval pageant that celebrates the Christian holiday of Epiphany, or Three Kings Day. The performance includes period costumes, live animals, and music of the Christmas season.
