The Twelfth Night Festival

jester Based on the century-old Boar’s Head Festival first performed at Hoosac School, in New York State, St. John's Twelfth Night is an Elizabethan pageant that combines the Christmas celebration with 16th century English song, and dance at the conclusion of the Christmas season. For over 30 years, we have been presenting and developing our festival so that we now include well over 130 participants in Elizabethan or biblical costumes.

The Twelfth Night Festival has been hailed as our "Signature" Parish event which we now proudly present every other year as our Christmas gift to the community.

On January 8, 2017, we will present three performances of the Festival. The first one occurs at 11:00 and is repeated at 2:30 and again at 5:00. Tickets are required for the Festival, and they are free of charge. Seating is limited and attendees should attempt to arrive at least 1/2 hour prior to the performance.

A free-will offering at the conclusion of the performance will benefit Samaritan Fellowship and Bethesda Mission. The costs of the festival are covered by patron donations and the Parish.

Tickets can be ordered by telephoning the church office after December 1, 2016, at 717-243-4220. Tickets need to be picked up in advance by Friday, December 30.
