An Evening in Old Bethlehem

Step into Old Bethlehem and Reclaim the Season

Bring your family, join your friends and step 2,000 years into the past, as we recreate the old city of Bethlehem. As you stroll the streets of the ancient marketplace, you’ll see how the residents lived and worked. You’ll meet the inhabitants of the town where Jesus was born and learn about the crafts and skills of olden times. Your visit will become especially significant as you experience the joy of the Nativity.

Save the Date for Friday and Saturday, December 6 & 7 2019!

The 2019 Evening in Old Bethlehem will be held on Friday, December  & Saturday, December 6 & 7 from 6-8 PM at the George H. Henderson Expo Center in Lufkin.  Entry into the City of Bethlehem is a 50 cent donation.
