A Christmas Town Festival

Fri Dec 4, 2020 - Sat Dec 5, 2020- see all dates
Various times

The  2020  festival has been canceled due to the increase in COVID-19 cases in the area.  The beautiful 85’ tall Norway Spruce tree on the Bethlehem town green will still be illuminated at 6:00 PM on Friday, December 4th, but unlike past years there will be no formal ceremony. The “Santa Made Me Do It” 5k race is still scheduled for Saturday morning December 5th

This year’s collectible pewter Christmas ornament titled “Santa’s Other Ride” is available for purchase from several merchants in Bethlehem or via mail order.

The Bethlehem Christmas Town Festival is an annual holiday tradition, and we hope you will join us on December 3 & 4, 2021 for what will be the 40th anniversary of the first festival.
