The Grosse Ile Boar’s Head Festival @ Sacred Heart Church
Dec 8 – Dec 11 all-day
The Grosse Ile Boar's Head Festival @ Sacred Heart Church | Grosse Ile Township | Michigan | United States

2022 FESTIVAL December 8-11

Grosse Ile’s most vibrant festival!

Five Churches and a team of 600 unite to create a magnificent performance!

A Christmas celebration with music and pageantry, the Boar’s Head Festival appears to be an American custom of English origin. Its roots are in the ancient English tradition of slaying a boar for the Christmas feast, roasting the severed head with an apple in its mouth and ceremoniously bearing it into the castle’s dining hall so that royalty and guests might admire it and the hunter’s prowess.

With the passage of time, the slaying of the boar has come to represent the conquering of evil at the birth of the Christ Child. This pageant displays both the colorful magnificence of the great feast and the simple beauty of the Christmas story.

Sponsored by the Interfaith Council of Churches, the Boar’s Head Festival is truly an ecumenical undertaking. Many members of our Island churches make up the 600 people who sing, perform or contribute their skills in the production of the festival by working on sets, costumes, lights, sound, publicity and programs.


Spectators will see and hear a brass ensemble, recorders, handbells, bagpipes, harpsichord, singers, dancers, tumblers, jesters, townspeople and a Christmas story. Musicians include an adult, youth and children’s choir of over 100 voices and a 25 piece orchestra.
