“Walk Through Bethlehem”


Join us on Saturday, November 23rd when Memory Lane Heritage Village will be transformed into the biblical scenes of the nativity, from the census taking of the soldiers of Caesar Augustus, to the "no vacancy" inn, to the marketplace of Bethlehem, to the birthplace of Jesus in the stable with live animals watching! A choir will be performing in the church throughout the duration of the walk, as well as local musicians in the clam factory and at the nativity scene. Warm drinks and cookies will be available (free will offering).

Free will offering. Please "pay" your "taxes" as the census is taken. Donations will be shared between the local food bank and the Heritage Village.

The "walk" will be open to the public from 4 PM to 7 PM, so come anytime during the duration, please allow at least an hour for your visit. A rain date, November 24th, will only be called if heavy rain / snow occurs. Check back here for details.

Here are some things to consider:

  • Parking is limited (additional parking across from Webbers Store), please carry a flashlight, and be safe.
  • We are accessible, but in the dark, uneven terrain may pose challenges.
  • Most of the "walk" takes place outside. Dress appropriately. Even indoor spaces will be cool as the doors open and close frequently.
  • The village is very pretty after dark, consider coming after 5:30, as past years have been busiest before dusk.
  • Take your time, there is no need to rush, enjoy the music and be aware that the nativity scene has limited viewing and you may need to wait.
  • Take time to meet your neighbours in line and enjoy the season.
  • As we do not know how many visitors will attend, please understand that treats are limited (bring additional snacks if needed).
  • Washrooms are located in the Hosking Store (as you enter) and then at the end of the "walk" in the Cookhouse.
  • Please no flash photography during the nativity (and around the animals).

Please Note: Memory Lane Heritage Village has farm animals on site and does not allow pets within the Village grounds.

Time: 4PM to 7PM

Fee: Free Will Donation
