Shop Crivitz for Christmas and Every Day!


Residents of the Village of Crivitz are encouraged to shop locally during the holiday season, and all year round.
The Village is home to a very diverse array of shops and services for your needs. 

When compared to that big box store over 50 miles away or that online clearing house, local businesses offer the
following advantages to your community in that they are far, far more likely to....

 Provide employment to people in the community.
Hire local contractors, insurance agents and accountants.
Borrow money from local banks, and pay local property taxes which support local services, such as fire, law enforcement, snow plowing and street lights.
Provide personal service to their customers - after all, they are far more likely to know you!
Donate to local non-profit groups such as the Rescue Squad, cheerleaders, ski teams, Lions Club and American Legion.
Participate in local fundraisers and benefits for local community members who have fallen on hard times.
In fact, donations to local non-profits, fundraisers and benefits by local businesses exceed those of larger retailers by 250%

 If you have fallen out of the habit of shopping in Crivitz you will be surprised at the range of products and services available.

When you spend it here, you keep it here!

Christmas in the Village of Bethlehem

Saturday, November 29th, 2014
2:00 - 4:30pm
Grace Lutheran Church
716 Henriette Ave.
'Downtown' Crivitz


On Saturday, November 29, from 2:00 to 4:30 PM, Grace Lutheran Church, 716 Henriette Avenue,
Crivitz (the white one with the steeple) will be sponsoring “Christmas in the Village of Bethlehem” in
conjunction with the Crivitz Business Association’s “Christmas in the Village” shopping promotion.
“Christmas in the Village of Bethlehem” is a living re-enactment of the greatest story ever told, the
birth of Christ. The event will include the lighting of an outdoor Christmas tree at the church at 4:15 PM. 
The story begins in the wilderness at the house of the prophet who awaits the promise of God to be fulfilled.
Travel ahead in time to the house of a young woman, as she hears from the angel that she is to be the mother of God.
Then travel with her to Bethlehem to celebrate with the shepherds and angels as the Savior is born into the world.
In addition to the telling of the true story of Christmas, there will be opportunities for the youngsters to make crafts
and enjoy refreshments. We will be presenting the program on the hour and the half hour from 2:00pm to 3:30pm.
Families are invited to drop their children off while they do their Christmas shopping in the Crivitz area stores.
They are also invited to join their children in watching the presentation.

The Crivitz Area Museum Complex is a great place to take a walk through the past and present of the Crivitz and Marinette County area.
Travel through eras gone by and see exhibits of an old time kitchen, schoolroom, general store, doctor's office, communications, and many others.
Browse through the variety of manuscripts, photographs and bits and pieces of local history.
 Enjoy the musical instrument  and antique tools displays, and a collection of farm equipment both inside and outside.
Add to this a tour of the historic logging late 1800's era log building, moved from the Lake Noquebay area and reassembled next to the museum,
with a miniature handmade display of an actual logging camp, and many, many artifacts and photos of the logging industry of bygone years.

The Crivitz Area Museum Complex is operated by the Crivitz-Stephenson Historical Society, a nonprofit organization whose sole purpose is to collect,
preserve, display and distribute knowledge of the history of the Crivitz area.
The Museum Complex is operated totally by volunteers from within the community. Admission to the complex is free, however,
 donations are greatly appreciated to help defray operational costs.
