15th Annual Drive-Thru Nativity

Kick off this Christmas season with Concordia's Drive-Thru Nativity!
Dec. 1 & 2 from 5-9pm * Free admission

The story of Christmas comes to life through this amazing outdoor production, complete with live animals and over 60 actors! See the true story of Christmas unfold from the comfort of your vehicle. Although we are sharing the same wonderful story of the birth of our Savior, the experience will be brand new! This is a Christmas event you don't want to miss!

***IMPORTANT TIP*** You can download the Concordia app before you come and use your phone to listen to the story! Visit www.Concordia.app to download!

Here are a few “Insider Tips” that may be helpful to you and your friends!

  1.  Come early!  The crowds are always big, and we expect the same this year. Don't wait until the last minute. The entrance to Concordia will close at 9 PM.
  2.  The Entrance has CHANGED!  The only entrance onto campus this year is off the access road of 1604.  PLEASE NOTE:  The Huebner entrance to Concordia will be closed. 
  3.  Expect a short wait in line.  While you're in line, have fun! We have some special surprises planned along the route while you wait.  We’ll have live Christmas music for you to enjoy, and, of course, Christmas cookies.  Enjoy the music, snack on the cookies and get into the Christmas spirit!
  4.  Test your CD player (ahead of time). The soundtrack for the Drive-Thru Nativity will be provided for you on a CD, and we invite you to check out the player in your car before you arrive. If you don't have a CD player, we will have one available for you to borrow.  
  5.  Listen to the live band on your radio! We have a low power radio station that will be broadcasting on 103.9 FM. 
  6.  Know how to shut off your headlights. We know this sounds easy, but with newer cars, it can be a bit more complicated than just pushing a switch. Your owner's manual will have instructions.
  7.  Go to the bathroom before you leave your house. We will have restrooms available for emergencies, but it is a hassle to pull out of the line.
  8.  Enjoy the DTN with Friends. Invite your friends and family BEFORE you get here. (There is NOT a place for you to all climb into one car together once you pull onto campus.)
  9.  Be sure to enter the drawing! You have a chance to win a $100 Visa gift card just in time for Christmas! Be sure to fill out the white card you get in line and then drop it off at one of the tables in the parking lot. The winner will be notified next week! 
  10.  Follow us on social media! Follow @ConcordiaSA on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for event updates and highlights. Please use the hashtag #ConcordiaChristmas if you decide to post on social media about your experience!
