Nativity scenes from around the world will be showcased at the 11th annual Community Crèche and Music Festival this weekend in Woodland. The free event runs from 3 to 8 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the meeting house of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on the corner of Gum and Pioneer avenues in Woodland.

The event combines a crèche exhibit with an extensive musical program, a family room of nativity-themed activities for children, and a Christ-centered exhibit featuring artwork of the Savior.

“In 11 years, this event has grown from a handful of items shared by members of our congregations in Woodland into a multi-faceted, interfaith gathering that brings together members of many churches and choirs in Yolo, Solano and Sacramento counties,” said Corey Cuvelier, president of the Woodland California Stake for the LDS Church. “This is a very special time of year.”

This year, the crèche exhibit will consist of more than 250 nativity scenes of all sizes and styles on loan from members of various local churches. A wide variety of crèches from all over the world will be on display, ranging from hand-painted monkey wood, carved stone, and clay and pewter, to those configured into ornaments, puzzles and even a music box from Hungary.

There are also items from countries such as Mexico, Zimbabwe, Israel, Spain, Chile, the Philippines, Egypt, and Ireland.

The musical part of the festival features an ongoing program throughout the weekend. Live classical and holiday music will include piano, organ, flute, string, and vocal solos and choir performances.

The centerpiece of the Crèche & Music Festival is the Community Choral Concert from 7 to 8 p.m. Saturday. After choirs from local churches and community groups perform, the evening will culminate with all the choirs combining to sing “O Holy Night” and Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus.
