Follow the Star


Have you ever dreamed about the night when Jesus was born? What it would be like to be visited by angels like Mary and Joseph? On a cold winter's night, one bright star out shone the others. When the angels proclaimed to the shepherds about their newborn King.

Follow the Star will take you back to that night and you will experience Christmas like never before.


Follow the Star is an incredible experience for you and your families, but because it's an outdoor event with some walking, you'll have a much better time if you know what to expect and come prepared!

An Outdoor Venue

Historic Kernstown Battlefield is the perfect setting for this guided walking tour. Come and see the paths and buildings transformed into the ancient period when Jesus came into this world. Because it's outdoors in December, plan to dress warmly and be ready to walk for a little while.

Experience the Story of Jesus' Birth

This isn't your typical nativity. When you arrive, you'll be transported in groups on a hay-ride to an ancient market where you will experience hands-on activities based on the culture in Jesus' time. Then, your group will be guided through a dramatic presentation with Roman guards, live animals, shepherds, angels, and more to display the night Jesus was born.


Weather conditions can cause for slick or muddy areas along the path, which can make the walkway challenging to navigate for those using walkers and wheelchairs. Some transport assistance is obtainable upon request. Please make your needs known as transport assistance is limited by availability. We look forward to your attendance and sharing this event with you.

Free Admission and Refreshments

At the end of the tour, peruse the aisles of thousands and thousands of free, home-baked cookies. Pair that with some of the best hot chocolate ever and you'll shake off the cold night in no time.
