2022 Crib of the Nativity Image

2022 Crib of the Nativity

Presented by Western & Southern Financial Group
December 9, 2022 - January 1, 2023
Krohn Conservatory, Eden Park

Under the thatched roof of a log stable, in a humble scene reflecting the peace and joy of Christmas, live animals and life-size figures recreate the birth of Jesus. Three generations of the Biedenharn family of Crittenden, Kentucky, have constructed the Nativity scene every year since 1939.

The Crib of the Nativity is Western & Southern Financial Group’s gift to the people of Greater Cincinnati. The annual tradition began in 1939, with construction of the company’s first Nativity display in Lytle Park downtown. During World War II, the crèche was erected at Union Terminal, where it served as a source of inspiration for departing troops and their families. It returned to Lytle Park after the war and moved to Eden Park in 1967.

Over the years, nearly 3 million people have visited the Crib of the Nativity. It is free to all visitors, and donations placed in the Crib’s collection box, or online, are generously matched by the Western & Southern Financial Fund and given to The Salvation Army to help needy children and the homeless throughout Greater Cincinnati.

Visit Eden Park, adjacent to the Krohn Conservatory, December 9, 2022, through January 1, 2023, 9 a.m. – 9 p.m. daily, to experience it for yourself.

The Salvation Army is grateful for this continued partnership with our beloved friends from Western & Southern Financial Group. 

Merry Christmas.
