Walk Thru Bethlehem

Unfortunately, out of abundant caution due to the delta variant, Walk Thru Bethlehem is once again canceled this year

Last updated: 11/18/21

We will once again not be walking through Bethlehem this year, 2021.  We look forward to a safe and healthy return of Walk Thru Bethlehem next year.  We give thanks to all who have enjoyed Walk Thru Bethlehem over the years and hope to see you soon!

See you next year!

A free family event for all ages! 

Over 200 costumed characters and live animals recreate the village of Bethlehem at the time of Jesus’ birth. Visit the merchants and shopkeepers, sample the food, stop at the synagogue, pass through the crowded inn, and find Mary and Joseph with baby Jesus in the manger.

Groups of all ages and sizes are welcome! The walk can take 20 minutes or an hour, depending on your interest and involvement. Activities are provided in the village shops for children to have hands-on experiences in basket weaving, carpentry, bread baking, wine and olive pressing, and pottery. Live camels, sheep, and goats surround Mary and Joseph’s stable to be seen and touched.
