2 Days till Christmas in Utah - Tuacahn - Christmas In The Canyon | Live Nativity


Since I am spending Christmas with my son in St George this will bring the Christmas spirt to anyone with the Live Nativity. What a beautiful way to spend the season.

Tuacahn's Christmas In The Canyon is presented every Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings from the day after Thanksgiving to December 23rd. Entrance to Christmas In The Canyon is free to the public. It's Tuacahn's way of saying "Thank you" to the community for its support and to remind us all of the true meaning of Christmas. A Live Nativity is presented each night in the Amphitheatre at 7:00 and 8:00 PM. Cost to get into the Live Nativity is $2.00 per ticket or $10.00 per family.

In addition to enjoying the Live Nativity, visitors can also see the lights and listen to wonderful Holiday music on the Tuacahn Plaza, or sit by an open fire and sip hot chocolate from Tuacahn's Concession Stand. Visitors will find a wonderful selection of Christmas items and Holiday gifts at the Tuacahn Gift Gallery. Near the entrance to the Gift Gallery parents can bring their children to see Santa Claus from 6:30 - 9:00 PM. There's something for everyone at Tuacahn's Christmas Festival of Lights.
Live Nativity
The Live Nativity includes real live camels, and beautiful costumes. Volunteers will staff all of the nativity efforts. "We've had great success working with religious leaders from all faiths in the area, every night, a new set of volunteers will be making this nativity come to life." said Rita Ostler.

Those interested in volunteering for the 2011 Live Nativity should contact the Tuacahn Administrative Offices at 435-652-3200 or by e-mail at

"Whether you can work on stage or back stage, everybody is welcome," said Ostler, the volunteer coordinator for the Live Nativity. "All contributions are appreciated."

Volunteers can participate for one night or many nights, depending on their circumstances. Roles to be filled include Mary and Joseph, the Three Wise Men, townspeople, angels, and shepherds.
