Visit Historic Downtown Bethlehem from December 1 through 23 to experience our unique, annual Live Advent Calendar tradition. The Downtown Bethlehem Association (DBA), an entity of the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce, in collaboration with Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites host this special tradition on Main Street each December. Enjoy this one-of-a-kind experience — it’s the only one like it in the nation!
The idea of the “Live Advent Calendar” is from the tradition of Advent Calendars or Christmas Countdown Calendars for children and families during the holidays. With a traditional calendar, there are a set number of “doors” to open each day as Christmas draws near. Traditional calendars provide a treat or verbiage each day.
