This year marks the 40th Anniversary of the St. Paul UMC Boar’s Head and Yule Log Festival, an event that brings more than 2,000 people to our church each year to share in a unique depiction of the gift of Christ to the world.
Our church’s youth and children drive the Boar’s Head Festival each year. Approximately 75 volunteer in various roles, and have a wonderful time of intense fellowship in rehearsals and shows. Several adults have stories of when they first participated as a child.
As the Boar’s Head Festival is not a part of the regular church budget, each year we seek to raise necessary funds to present this gift to our community. The Festival depends solely upon volunteer time and generous financial donations from St. Paul church members. During this anniversary year, our goal is to cover the cost of the event (about $20,000), and designate extra funds to the continuation of the Festival and other musical endeavors in the years to come.
St. Paul UMC has a rich tradition of the arts in ministry. Praising God through music and drama is a beautiful way to worship and to be blessed. We know there are many people who leave the Festival feeling the beauty and love that Jesus brought to all, from peasants to kings.
There are a couple ways to financially support the Festival: make a donation, and attend the dinner-the ticket revenue supports the Festival. Please consider a generous donation today.
- Sprites (up to $99)
- Shepherds ($100-$249)
- Saints ($250-$499)
- Angels ($500 – $749)
- Kings ($750 – $999)
- Stars of Wonder ($1000 and up)
Patrons are acknowledged in the festival program every year.
