Top 7 Reasons to Visit the Shepherd’s Grove Christmas Village

Shepherd's Grove Christmas Village at Shepherd's Grove

Shepherd's Grove Christmas Village at Shepherd's GroveThe North Pole comes to Season of Rejoice during the Shepherd’s Grove Christmas Village, a two-night festival featuring an array of Christmas activities and treats for all ages. Hosted by Shepherd’s Grove Family Ministry, Shepherd’s Grove Christmas Village will offer a myriad of festivities for all ages. Here are the seven things we’re most excited for (and you should be, too):

  1. Santa will be there! Because it’s hard to imagine Christmas without him, the big man in red will be visiting Shepherd’s Grove to meet and take photos with little ones. I’ve also heard he will be bringing gifts for all who visit him!
  2. Experience “The Shepherd’s Story” in the Village Theater. Immerse in the Christmas Story in this short, fun-filled live theater performance.
  3. Cookies and hot chocolate. Just for Shepherd’s Grove Christmas Village, Mrs. Claus will open her kitchen and offer hot chocolate and cookies to decorate (and eat, of course)!
  4. Christmas crafts and reindeer games. If you’re like me and crafting is one of your favorite Christmas activities, you will love our Christmas Nativity craft! Also especially exciting, this year we’ll have reindeer games sure to make the whole family shout with glee.
  5. Sing along with our Christmas Carolers. As you tour the Village Square, which will be decorated with a huge display of inflatable decorations, keep an ear out for some of your favorite Christmas tunes.
  6. There will be SNOW. A rare sight in Orange County, Shepherd’s Grove will host a winter wonderland perfect for making and throwing snowballs or building snowmen!
  7. Admission is free! We are so excited to share the joy of the Christmas season with our community, so we invite you to bring as many friends and family members you can for an evening of unforgettable yuletide fun for free!
