Upcoming Fort Nisqually Living History Museum Events
Queen Victoria's Birthday
Saturday, May 19 (11:00am - 5:00pm)
Relive the festive 19th century celebrations surrounding a royal holiday. A merry mood permeates the Fort on this occasion. At noon, bagpipes announce the start of the traditional tributes to the queen. The pipes are followed by a musket volley, toasts to the queen, and a cannon salute. Many of the Fort’s ladies and gentlemen will be dressed in their finest, 1850s fashion. Throughout the day, guests can visit with our historical interpreters, join in a game of croquet, and enjoy performances.
