East Bay’s Only Live Nativity


Barrington, Rhode Island — East Bay’s only live nativity is a free and family-friendly outdoor event presented by Barrington Baptist Church at 25 Old County Road in Barrington, Rhode Island, for two nights only from 6:00-8:00 p.m. on Friday, December 8, and Saturday, December 9. The meticulously staged production recreates the story of Jesus’ birth through hand-crafted venues, period-costumed actors, and live animals, including goats, sheep, and camels.

Guests will be greeted by Roman guards taking the census and welcomed into a marketplace in Bethlehem. From there, guests will travel to the shepherds’ field with angels proclaiming the birth. Everyone will have an opportunity to sit and reflect at the nearby manger scene with Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus before being welcomed by camels and the Three Wise Men approaching the holy family’s home.

Christmas revelers are invited to stay for warm refreshments while the kids decorate Christmas cookies. Families and friends can snap their photo in the photo spot as a memento for the evening.

Parking will be available on-site, and overflow parking will be available across the street from the event. Details can be found at
