Enjoy the sparkling lights, festive European village atmosphere, and tasty holiday food! The Christmas Hope Festival is a completely free outdoor experience for the whole family!
What To Expect
By the time the festival opens, it will be dark outside. Don’t forget to bundle up! This is an outdoor event and it may be cold. In the case that we have to cancel a festival evening, we will inform you by email and post a notice on this website.
When you arrive at our parking lot, we will assist you in navigating to a good parking space. Please inform our Parking & Security Team if you need a handicap accessible space. Traffic may be heavy at times, please be patient with our staff and other drivers.
As you enter the front gate of the festival, you will be walking into a mid-1800’s European village. Greeters dressed for the time will welcome you with a smile and direct you to your first stop – the “Good News Publications” Print Shop. Next, you won’t want to miss any of the four presentations that will immerse you into the full story of Christmas and why Christmas time is a special time of HOPE! If you missed one of the presentations, just wait a few minutes and the show will be repeated.
On your way through the village, you will find many of the local shops are open for this special occasion. Don’t disappoint any of the shopkeepers! They will each want to serve you their best!
You may stay as long as you want, but the festival will begin to close around 8:30 PM. On your way out, be sure to stop by our literature booth where you will find helpful resources for knowing God and spiritual living. The festival’s four presentations are designed to get you thinking about your relationship with God and how His truth brings HOPE to our lives. If you have any questions, about God and the forgiveness and peace He can bring to your life, please talk to one of our staff on your way out. We would love to have the opportunity to show you what the Bible says about the love and forgiveness of God!
