To help get Fort visitors in a festive holiday spirit, Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park (SHP) has an interactive and fun “Hands on History” event scheduled on one very special day in December! Throughout the day, Fort visitors will step back in time to holidays past with festive, hands-on activities such as dipping candles, making cornhusk dolls and crafting holiday ornaments as part of special “A Simple Emigrant Christmas” activities. Friends and families are encouraged to visit the Fort to enjoy docents in period attire as they interpret and demonstrate a variety of early holiday traditions and cultural activities similar to what early emigrants did in the 1840s.
