A free event for the whole family.
This family-friendly event is FREE. East Bay's only live nativity is back again for two nights.
This live outdoor event is a meticulously-staged production recreating the story of Jesus' birth through hand-crafted venues, period-costumed actors, and live animals including goats, sheep, and camels! You will be greeted by Roman guards and welcomed into a marketplace in Bethlehem. From there you will travel to the shepherds' field with angels proclaiming the birth. You can take time to sit and reflect at the nearby manger scene with Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus before being greeted by camels and the Three Wise Men approaching the holy family's home.
Christmas revelers are invited to stay for warm refreshments and kids can decorate their own Christmas cookies. Families and friends can snap their photo in the photo spot as a memento of the evening.
Parking is available in the main church parking lot, as well as across the street at the East Bay Health Center and the Primrose Elementary School along Old County Road. Barrington Police will be on hand to guide traffic, and the church has a team to direct guests as the parking lots fill up.
