A 19th Century Christmas
Saturday, December 2 (11:00am - 4:00pm)
Take a break from the hustle and bustle of modern holidays and experience a real old-fashioned Christmas at Fort Nisqually Living History Museum.
A highlight of the event is the arrival of the yule log, towed in by young visitors at 1 pm. Everyone can join in greeting the yule log with toasts and Christmas Carols. Guests will have a chance to take home a piece of the log for their own holiday fire.
Throughout the day, guests of all ages can join in parlor games, make ornaments, and create pomanders. Father Christmas will be available for visits and photos.
This year Fort Nisqually is excited to welcome artist Lauren Muney of Silhouettes By Hand. Lauren’s silhouette portraits of guests are cut freehand with scissors, without drawing or tracing, and are finished in less than two minutes.
There is no additional fee for having portraits made. Timed tickets to receive a portrait will be distributed during the event. We suggest visitors arrive early to take home this special memento.
Event admission is $8-$10, and children 3 and younger are free. For more information call (253) 591-5339.
