This year has thrown us a huge curve ball but the annual Christmas activities at Tuacahn are still on schedule in 2020! Whether you live in or are visiting St. George UT for the holidays, Tuacahn invites everyone to come enjoy.  Visitors will be able to view the live nativity and Christmas in the Canyon this December.  Come feel the Christmas spirit, see thousands of sparkling lights and even a visit with Santa! The holiday spirit is certainly in the air at Tuacahn! 

Live nativity performances will now have assigned seating. They strongly recommend purchasing your tickets in advance and anticipate most shows to sell out.   Face masks are required at all times while visiting Tuacahn this year.

There is no admission charge to visit Tuacahn and enjoy Christmas in the Canyon.  It’s Tuacahn’s way of saying “thank you” to the community for its support and to remind us all of the true meaning of Christmas.  There is a minimal charge to view the live Nativity, see below.
