THE 2018 BOAR’S HEAD FESTIVAL
Each year, as we approach what many people consider to be the highlight of their Christmas season, the BOAR’S HEAD FESTIVAL has become a major focus in Trinity’s Epiphany Season. Yankee Magazine has called the Festival “the most awe-inspiring event of the holiday season.” The Springfield Union-News (now Republican) has called it “rare and beautiful…a powerful, persuasive and eminently entertaining reason for people of diverse religious beliefs to gather in a common space and reflect on the symbolism of light overcoming darkness.” The congregation of Trinity Church considers this dramatization of the Epiphany story to be our gift to the greater Springfield community, and we work each year to strengthen its retelling and to involve our audiences more fully in the journey of Christian faith, from its ancient secular origins to the joyous arrival of the Messiah.
As a PATRON of the FESTIVAL, your financial support helps underwrite the costs of this production and other community outreach programs of Trinity Church. In addition, you have the opportunity to purchase tickets ahead of the general public and receive recognition in our FESTIVAL program. PATRONS are designated by the following categories and may purchase up to this number of tickets prior to

In an effort to share our gift with an even wider audience, we are again offering PATRONS the opportunity to contribute as a SHEPHERD. To become a SHEPHERD, a patron, at any level, may designate one or more tickets to remain at Trinity, to be donated to people who cannot afford to purchase their own. Donated tickets may be over and above the amount designated under each of the PATRON categories.
