Boar’s Head and Yule Log Festival

You are invited once again to celebrate the Boar’s Head and Yule Log Festival with us! The  42nd annual Festival will be held this year ON ONLY TWO EVENINGS: Thursday, December 29, and Friday, December 30, at 5:30 and 8:00 pm.

*This Plymouth gift to the community has grown since 1975 to include over 300 cast, crew, choir, and orchestra members, and has been enjoyed by over 129,160 audience members. 

*Although tickets are required, they have been free to our patrons, congregational members, and the public for more than forty years now!  

  • *Without the generosity of our patrons, this Festival tradition, sadly, will end. Forty-two years of services could not be possible without the contributions and support of all of you.  As we prepare for this year’s Festival and celebration, we once again must ask for your generous support.
  • It costs nearly $20,000/year to produce the Festival each year. The entire funding must come from generous patrons and the contributions made by our audiences through free-will offerings. Last year, your contributions allowed Plymouth to continue this Festival tradition and we thank you so much! But the bottom line is that we need YOU so that the Festival can continue AGAIN THIS SEASON! 

Boar's Head Festival Patronage

If you have been a patron in recent years, we hope you know how grateful we are to you, and we hope that you will continue, this year, to support the Festival. We would invite those of you who have not chosen to support the Boar’s Head in this way to consider becoming a patron this season and make it a part of your future Christmas traditions. We are offering the tax-deductible levels of patronage that have helped the Boar’s Head Festival to continue to operate as a ministry of Plymouth Church. The 2016 Patron levels are as follows: 

FESTIVAL PATRON - $50                                                  MAGI PATRON - $100

ANGEL PATRON- $250                                                      STAR OF THE EAST - $500+

As a patron, you have first choice for a maximum of six tickets (We only ask that you order what you know you will use). You also have access to tickets prior to the distribution to Plymouth’s members (December 4, 2016) and to the general public. To insure the availability of tickets and to allow time for printing of the programs, your participation as a patron should be received by Friday, December 2, (although we will continue to receive contributions after those dates).

If you have any questions regarding ticket distribution, please call the church at (260)-423-9424 and ask to leave a message on the Boar’s Head line. A volunteer will return your call as soon as possible. Plymouth once again prepares for this community-gift in the season of joy, goodwill, and peace.

Our sincere thanks you for your contribution that helps to make this gift a reality for so many.
