Trinity's Boar's Head Festival
Every January, Trinity Church presents this annual Epiphany celebration commemorating 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.
The 38th Annual Boar's Head Festival is scheduled January 15, 16 and 17, 2021. Tickets are available for patrons at the beginning of October and to the public at the beginning of November. If you would like to be added to our mailing list, please send your name and address to firstname.lastname@example.org. Details including ticket information shall be on this page in October.
