Description

The Boar's Head & Yule Log Festival takes place at St. Peter's Lutheran Church in Lafayette Hill every year in early January. This will be the Church's 37th production on January 6th and 7th, 2018. On Saturday, January 6th, performances will take place at 1:00, 4:00 and 7:00 p.m. On Sunday, January 7th, performances will be at 1:00 and 4:00 p.m. (we will not be providing a performance on Sunday at 7:00 p.m. this year).

The Boar's Head Festival originated at Queen's College, Oxford, England in 1340. The Festival celebrates the Epiphany when the Wise Men arrived in Bethlehem to honor the birth of Jesus. At St. Peter's it begins with a tiny sprite bearing a lighted candle symbolizing the coming of the Light into the darkened world. The Festival continues with, among others, a brass fanfare, Lords and Ladies of the Manor, King Wenceslas, woodsmen, shepherds, the Cameron Highland Pipe Band, drummers and the Beefeaters who are the fabled ceremonial guards of the Tower of London. Finally, the Three Kings arrive bringing their gifts to Mary, Joseph and the Christ Child. There is plenty to keep the whole family inspired and entertained. Those assembled are asked to join in singing the hymns along with the choir and cast of nearly 200 people.

St. Peter's is handicapped accessible with valet parking when needed. Free parking is available.
