Important Information!

How do walk-ins for Journey to Bethlehem work?

Each night of J2B there are a limited number of slots budgeted for non-ticketed visitors to use. Spots that become available when ticketed visitors don’t show up are also used for walk-ins.

If you come as a walk-in, check-in at the ticketing table to get on the list for an available slot. They may be able to tell you how long your anticipated wait will be. Then you can enjoy live Christmas music in the sanctuary while you wait. If you want to increase your chances of getting walk-in tickets:

  • Come early in the evening, doors open at 5:00 p.m.
  • Be willing to split your party into smaller groups. More spots may become available for 2-3 people than 5-6+ together. You can always meet up again at the end & enjoy your cups of cider together!

Based on our past experience, Friday & Saturday nights are our busiest nights, so Thursday, Sunday, or Monday will likely give you more chance of success & shorter wait times.

If the weather isn’t very good, no-shows or cancellations are very likely, so just bundle up and come! (We have gone on under light snow and rain in the past!)
