We have five shows every night that start
every half hour.
Are pets allowed?
No. Bethlehem can be very crowded and it is not safe for pets to be there.
We also have many live animals as part of the show that are frightened by
What should I wear?
Bethlehem is completely outside, so make sure to dress warm.
The town is covered with sand, so we recommend that you wear
shoes that you do not mind getting dirty.
How much does it cost to attend?
The show is completely free, however donations are gratefully
Is the show wheelchair accessible?
Yes, but be aware that the town is sandy, so you will need to be
able to move your wheelchair through the thin layer of sand that
is on top of our parking lot.
Where do we park?
Parking is free but is limited and takes place across the street at Santa
Clara High School or around the neighborhood if the school lots fill up. All
of the lots typically fill up by 7pm on busy nights.
How long does the show last?
The main performance is 30 minutes long, but we recommend planning
on being here for two hours if you want to see everything. In addition
to the main performance, there are performances by the wise men as well
as the shepherds, with each happening at the same time as the main show.
Also, you will want to make sure you have time to explore the interactive marketplace.
