Boar’s Head & Yule Log Festival
The spirit of Christmas in Corpus Christi doesn’t end when the last gifts are opened, and the traditional holiday dinner has been served. For close to four decades in the Coastal Bend, Christmas continues into the cool, quiet days of early January when members of First Christian Church present a gift of pageantry to the communities of South Texas.
The Boar’s and Yule Log Festival, an ancient Renaissance festival, is possibly the oldest continuing festival of the Christmas season. The present-day festival results from an amalgamation of several antique celebrations turned into a procession of dances and music, joining traditions of Old England with the Christian joy.
The audience is enveloped in this festive mirth as over 180 people in authentic Renaissance costumes play a part in this pageant, recreating a medieval manor house and celebrating this legend that unfolds with energy and momentum into a dramatic and symbolic finale.
Three performances: 3pm, 5pm, and 7pm. Free admission; donations non-perishables will be accepted on behalf of the Coastal Bend Food Bank.Read More at FCC-CC.org
