Since 1932, State Auto Insurance downtown has set up the State Auto Christmas Corner and Life-Sized Nativity that is open to the public. The nativity scene and story of Christmas is a tradition that is loved by many. While things have to change for 2020 to reduce crowds, you’ll still enjoy this family-favorite seasonal delight.
State Auto Christmas Corner and Life-Sized Nativity
State Auto’s Christmas Corner, including its historic life-sized Nativity display, returns to 518 E. Broad St. in December.
For 2020, they are not having an annual lighting ceremony, weekend musical performances or Christmas Eve ceremony. Face coverings and appropriate physical distancing will be required of all guests.
The display will be lit the weekend after Thanksgiving through January 4, 2021. No official lighting ceremony or performances will be held, so visit anytime throughout the season.
From a rooftop Santa Town with thousands of lights and hundreds of Christmas trees, to the current display which includes a life-sized Nativity scene, State Auto’s Christmas Corner is recognized around the world for its beauty and attention to artistic and historic detail.
