A Simple Emigrant Christmas At Sutter’s Fort

By Alyssa Green

Looking for a different holiday experience to share with your children?   Well, look no further.  This Saturday, December 10th, Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park comes alive with a Simple Emigrant Christmas.  Stop by from 10am to 5pm for a multi-cultural holiday history lesson…and we guarantee this lesson will be fun!

In the early days of the fort, people from all over the world passed through and brought with them unique holiday traditions from their home countries.  Some of which are still celebrated today.  Come experience the food, decorations, crafts and activities from those early Sutter’s Fort residents.

Visitors will be able to dip candles, string popcorn and cranberries to decorate a christmas tree, make cornhusk dolls and craft ornaments out of paper.  Fort volunteers will be in period costume and on hand to share the holiday traditions of the past.  This is definitely a family event, so bundle up the kids and head on over to midtown (Sutter’s Fort falls into the FREE holiday parking zone) this Saturday for a fun educational holiday experience.
