Upcoming Fort Nisqually Living History Museum Events

June 15

Plough to Plate

Saturday, June 15 (11:00am - 5:00pm)

Discover farm to table, 19th century style, at Plough to Plate!  

Throughout the day guests can tour the heritage kitchen garden and poultry house, orchard, and grain patch and learn how these relate to the agricultural history of the Fort. To get in on the act visitors can try churning butter and hauling water with a yoke.

Kids can participate in an egg and spoon race, a common entertainment in the 19th century.

For the adults we will hold a pancake race, a traditional British amusement involving a relay while flipping pancakes in a frying pan.

The highlight of the day is the cooking competition with our period chefs trying their hardest to impress the judges with flavor and presentation to win the coveted “Golden Skillet” nad "Golden Mold" awards. Judging takes place at 3:30 p.m.

Event admission is $8-$10, children 3 and younger are free. For more information visit or call (253) 404-3970.
