Christmas at Fort Vancouver
December 8 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Within the reconstructed fort, volunteers re-enactors will portray the sights and sounds of an 1840s fur-trade Christmas and New Year’s Day at this popular annual event. This holiday was one of the few times a year that the Hudson’s Bay Company granted leave to all employees. Many spent this respite outdoors, hunting or fishing, and all would celebrate together by dining and dancing in the fort.
Visitors will hear caroling by Madrigal Singers as they enjoy free, warm holiday wassail, games, music, demonstrations and dancing. There will be several Victorian-era craft activities for visitors, with the park providing materials for making wooden toy tops, wreaths and potpourri ornaments.
The standard $7 per person admission fee will apply for this event.
Two more events will also be happening at the Fort Vancouver Visitors Center on the same day!
