Photos from the 2024 Boar's Head Festival
Trinity presented their 41st annual Boar's Head Festival January 12-14, 2024.
This annual Epiphany celebration commemorates a medieval festival from England, symbolizing the triumph of good over evil. The festival is preceded by a period of preparation as the audience arrives.
The festival opens with a tiny sprite entering with a lighted candle to symbolize Christ as the light of the world and continues with the procession of townspeople, dancers, and musicians celebrating the possibilities of peace, hope, and reconciliation in anticipation of the birth of Christ. The celebration moves through the journey of the three kings, the shepherds, and animals, searching for the Christ Child, and concludes with the celebrants kneeling in adoration as the Te Deum stained glass window shines over the cathedral and blesses everyone with the Christmas story.
This is a small sampling of photos taken by the BHF photographer. Please check out the hundreds of photos posted on the Trinity Photo Blog that are posted by when they were taken:
