Crestwood Festival of Nativities
Chances are if you celebrate Christmas, you are familiar with the nativity scene and might even have one displayed in your home during this holiday season. The Church of Latter Day Saints in Crestwood hosts the annual event, Festival of Nativities, where the community is invited to visit and view 600 displays of nativities from around the world.
The event is back, but many of the usual activities will not happen this year to help keep the community healthy and safe.
What began in 2009 as a way to help bring measure of the Christmas spirit to the community has turned into a tradition for many in Oldham County and the surrounding area. Share the meaning of Christmas during one of the three days of the event. It is free and open to everyone.
At The Festival of Nativities a large room’s lights are dimmed and tabletops are adorned with winterscapes, white lights and unique nativities. Visitors will see traditional Nacimiento, a living nativity, porcelain, wooden, gingerbread and more varieties.
Unfortunately, this year’s event will not have some of its usual activities. The children’s activities, live concerts, family photo opportunities, cookies and nativity story tours are postponed for 2021. Children are of course still welcome to attend the event.
Church of Latter Day Saints is located at 6401 Westwind Way Crestwood, KY 40014
