Boars Head and Yule Log Festival

November 14, 2012 by Anonymous

Event Date: 
Sat, 01/05/2013 - 3:00pm

The 37th anniversary of the Boar’s Head and Yule Log Festival will be at 3 and 5 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 5 and Sunday, Jan 6 at University Christian Church’s Sanctuary, 2720 South University Drive in Fort Worth. The pageant is based on an old legend, that of an Oxford student who kills a wild boar when it interrupts his studies. When the church adopted the Festival, it gained Christian significance: the wild boar, symbolic of evil, is overcome by good through the teachings of Christ. The second part of the program features the original Christmas story, as shepherds and Wise Men travel to Bethlehem to bring gifts to the Christ Child. Family and friends are welcome to this no cost event. Free seating is limited, and festival patron seats are available for purchase beginning Nov. 26 for $15. Ticket holders should arrive 30-45 minutes early to be seated. Standing room is available in the back balcony.
