“NOEL” A Celebration of Christmas

Event Starts
Friday, Dec 8 2023 @ Times Vary
Event Ends
Saturday, Dec 16 2023

Two full hours of nonstop Christmas excitement returns to the Michiana Event Center in Shipshewana! This amazing and uplifting show is filled with nonstop equestrian adventures, featuring some of the most beautiful horses anywhere, along with incredibly talented riders from all around the world. See the Noel singers, dancers, aerialist, hogs, dogs and more!

Christmas is without a doubt the most special time of the year, and we are proud and honored to share with you the real reason we celebrate Christmas, the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ! “Noel” features one of the largest living nativities anywhere, complete with a re-creation of the stable and manger in Bethlehem where the savior was born. A glorious Angel heralds the Lord’s coming as wise men from the East with real-life camels come to witness the blessed miracle, as well as the townspeople with their sheep, goats, donkey & cow.

VIP Add On:   One very unique feature after the main show is the VIP experience. We offer our guests a chance to get a close up look at what goes on behind the scenes with a backstage tour. During this time our guests get to meet the cast members, take pictures, have their souvenirs autographed, and talk with each individual cast member one on one. They will also get up close and personal with the animal stars including an opportunity to ride one of our horses.  Take advantage of the opportunity to get “hands-on” with our nativity animals, and yes, even up close with the  camels.

Dinner & Pre-Show

Come join our Christmas feast and experience true warm deliciousness, where everything is roasted, baked, and delicious!
