The Bethlehem Experience
Time & Location
About the event
What should I expect?
A night that you won't forget! A new experience with family and friends! Non-intimidating, no Biblical knowledge necessary!
We transform our 6,000 square foot HEATED indoor arena building into the city of Bethlehem featuring a beautiful Nativity, live animals, a ton of fun and-- most of all -- a chance to experience the true meaning of Christmas.
Things we want to point out: Security will be present. There will be light walking from the drop off area to the Roman soldier's filing line. The Bethlehem marketplace/city will be inside of our 6,000 square foot HEATED arena. :) The live Nativity will be just outside of the arena. You'll be able to see our Nativity animals and, of course, you may walk through our horse barn and see some of our beautiful horses and ponies!
FREE refreshments! FREE marketplace tasting! FREE group photograph!
How do I register?
Registration is closed at this time. We generally open registration in November.
Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
All children 17 and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. We do not have any other age requirements; children and adults, alike, are encouraged to attend!
What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
PLEASE ARRIVE 15 MINUTES PRIOR TO YOUR TICKET TIME.
Since parking is limited, our home church, LifeSong Church, has arranged the use of shuttle vans to transport guests. Guests should park at Ramey-Estep Home, 2901 Pigeon Roost Rd, Rush, KY 41168. Parking space is limited, so please have your party drive as few vehicles as possible to the Ramey-Estep parking lot. Shuttle vans will run from the Ramey-Estep parking lot to the event and back for the entire duration of the event.
BECAUSE OF CERTAIN INSURANCE POLICIES, YOU MUST LOCK YOUR VEHICLE AND BRING YOUR KEYS WITH YOU.
Handicap DROP OFF is available for vehicle passengers. If the driver of the vehicle is handicap, you must let us know on the registration/reservation form so that we may accommodate. Handicap parking is limited; we will try our best to accommodate.
What should I bring?
Bring your tax payment of THREE CAN FOOD DONATIONS PER PERSON. Can food donations will benefit LifeSong Church's food pantry and Star Elementary School's backpack program.
You may bring a camera and/or cell phone, if you'd like! Please, no flash photography. You may want to leave any carry items at home, so that you can experience the event in the best way possible! Please leave all other items in your vehicle. Security will be present and guests will be under surveillance. No firearms or other illegal items permitted. We reserve the right to dismiss guests who seem unruly, disorderly, aggressive, etc.
How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Please text or email for a quick response. Text Jessica at 606.922.4853 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that prior to the event and during the event, we will be busy and may not answer calls, texts or emails.
Do I have to bring my ticket to the event?
Please have your printed ticket (one per vehicle) or digital ticket ready to show our Roman guards. Tickets should be downloaded and a screen shot shown, as we do not provide Wi-Fi for all guests.
Can I update my registration information?
If your party changes, you will need to update the information here on Eventbrite or else your party may be split up.
Is my main registration fee or ticket transferrable?
If you have someone you'd like to transfer your ticket to, you MUST transfer at least 72 hours before the event date/time. Do this by modifying your ticket information here in EventBrite.
Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?
Nope! Your ticket should match the name of the person in charge of the reservation. Waivers must be signed during the security check at the farm, so it's mandatory that we know who is at the event. Don't blame us; it's the Roman soldier's rule.
What should I wear?
Dress comfortably and accordingly to weather. We are an authentic, working horse farm. You will be walking in our barn shavings and some gravel. Wear comfortable shoes or boots that may get a bit dirty!
How do I get to the farm?
GPS works for our farm location. We are at 18517 State Route 854 in Rush, KY 41168.
