The Annual Boar's Head and Yule Log Festival


Since 1939, we have been mounting the annual Boar's Head and Yule Log Festival the weekend following Christmas. Adults and children from across the Episcopal Diocese of Southern Ohio and from elsewhere in the community join us to serve in the cast and crew. We consider our presentation of the Boar's Head to be a Christmas gift to the people of Cincinnati. Our cathedral is always packed for this festive occasion.
