Travel back in time and enjoy this interactive, guided journey through a first century outdoor, family Christmas experience. Experience the people, places and circumstances that surrounded the birth of Jesus Christ at this year's Journey to Bethlehem in Oklahoma City.

This holiday season, treat your family to a 3D Christmas without the glasses.  Dress warm, because you’ll find it hard to believe you’re still in Oklahoma City when your mind is whisked away to another time and another place as you follow a guide on an outdoor journey through a wooded area on church property.  This Journey will give you the experience of traveling for the census to the town of Bethlehem. 

See over 300 people in costume as you encounter Old Testament prophets, shepherds tending their sheep, the Wise Men from the east, marketplace vendors and even other travelers.  Roman soldiers will stop you along the way to make sure you are adhering to the rules.  Register for the census in Judea and witness the sights and sounds of the town of Bethlehem, including a marketplace, inn, stable and the Christ Child lying in a manger.  Your children will delight in the camels, donkeys, llamas, sheep, chickens and many other live animals.  

At the conclusion of Journey to Bethlehem, enjoy hot chocolate and homemade cookies in a winter wonderland.  No tickets or reservations are required.  Tours will depart every two minutes from 6-9pm each evening.
