Upcoming Fort Nisqually Living History Museum Events

September 8

Harvest Home

Saturday, September 8 (11:00am - 5:00pm)

Join us to celebrate the sights, sounds, and smells of autumn at our Harvest Home festival.

Visitors can learn to make corn husk dolls, weave wheat straw, play popular Victorian games, and help decorate the hock cart that will carry the last sheaf of wheat through the fort to the granary.

The Puget Sound Revels will sing and dance to harvest songs and a harvest king and queen will be crowned from among the fort’s teen volunteers.

The public is also invited to enter the fort’s jam and jelly competition.  A panel of judges will sample all entries and award a special prize for the tastiest preserve.

Ages 3 and under: Free
Youth (4-17): $8
Military/Senior (65+): $9
Adult (18-64): $10
Family(Up to 2 adults + 6 youth): $35
