Hot cocoa. Carols. Warm cookies. Twinkling lights. These sights, sounds, and smells can stir up feelings of warmth in us and bring families together. West Jackson Baptist Church is looking forward to providing another unforgettable experience this Christmas!
For three days this December, you can walk through a wonderland of lights, enjoy live entertainment, experience our winter tubing attraction, and more!
Admission to the Christmas Village is $5 per person (All Ages 2+). This includes access to all attractions, with the exception of food trucks. (Kids under age 2 are welcome but will not need to purchase admission.)
You can reserve your tickets in advance online to be picked up at the gate, or purchase them onsite at the gate.
Ticket sales at the gate will close at 8pm each evening.
Food trucks will be available with additional charges.
Winter Tubing Experience
New in 2022, Christmas Village will feature a Winter Tubing Experience! Tube down our Mount Everest, or stick to the Bunny Slopes for a milder, more kid-friendly experience. Tubing, along with all attractions (with the exception food trucks), is completely covered by the cost of admission!
Giant Christmas Tree and Christmas Train
The center of the Christmas Village features our 18 foot tall Christmas Tree. Parents and children are invited to ride our new and improved Christmas Train that circles the tree!
All guests are invited to ride our hayride, which explores different scenes from the story of the birth of Jesus.
Bethlehem Stable Petting Zoo
Near the center of the village, you can visit our live Bethlehem-themed petting zoo!
In addition to live Christmas Caroling, we will also have a short Christmas Play showing every hour!
Candlelight Carols Around the Tree
Each night at 7:30pm, join us around the Christmas Tree to light candles and sing Christmas Carols! You won’t want to miss out on this unique experience together.
Christmas Around the World
Just inside the main doors, visit Christmas Around the World! We’ll have interactive activities (including crafts and games!) to help kids learn about and experience Christmas in different countries.
Hot Cocoa and Christmas Cookies
Feeling tired of the cold winter weather? Come inside for a complimentary (included in $5 admission) cup of Hot Cocoa and a Christmas Cookie. You can even sip your cocoa while you watch the Christmas Play!
One section of the village will be filled with kid-friendly activities, a Christmas Playhouse, carnival games, and a snowball fight arena.
The Christmas Village features several food trucks, where you can purchase a bite to eat!
