43th ANNUAL NATIVITY PAGEANT

Queen of The Holy Rosary Shrine Necedah WI Located one mile East of Necedah on HWY 2154646
The Nativity Pageant at the Queen of the Holy Rosary Mediatrix of Peace Shrine in Necedah has been performed each year since 1971.
This accurate and historic presentation of the Nativity Story is staged outdoors with a large cast in colorful costumes, along with many animals.
The re-enacted Story begins in Nazareth where it was announced that all were to travel to Bethlehem for a census. It then portrays the cold four day/three-night journey to Bethlehem and the difficulties Mary and Joseph encounter in that crowded city. Finally, it re-lives the Birth of Jesus in a cave outside of the city.

Everyone is welcome to be part of this beautiful Christmas experience.

Dress warmly for the outdoor weather.

Admission and refreshments afterward are FREE.
