Boar's Head Festival 2021
The 2021 performance of the Boar's Head Festival was virtual due to the pandemic. A Playlist of all 12 Days of videos can be accessed HERE.
The 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. During this period there are opportunities for the audience to interact with the cast as the sanctuary is prepared for the festival.
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.
