The annual Yulefest will be on the first Saturday in December on the grounds of Historic Mansker's Station.
At this year's event, participants can nibble on cookies and cakes, step to a called dance, and shop for unique gift items, including handmade wooden items from the trees in Moss-Wright Park, at the Visitors's Center.
The fort will come alive with music, storytelling, and demonstrations. In the large blockhouse, stomp your feet to a Yulefest favorite, the Big Auger String Band. The carpenter's cabin will hold Zoe Lyttle and the Stewart Brothers playing and singing traditional Christmas songs. Rebekah Winskie will perform on the fiddle in the small blockhouse, and Debbie Caldwell will be telling stories of Christmas past in the deluxe cabin. A new addition to this year's festivities includes Kathleen Tirpak in the dirt floor cabin conducting toy demonstrations.
At the Bowen House, crowd favorite Kell Coulter will be singing and displaying her skills on the harp and Connell Methodist Church Adult Handbell Choir will be ringing in the sounds of Christmas.
Historic Mansker's Station is located in Moss-Wright Park at 705 Caldwell Drive. Parking is available at the Visitor's Center and in the park. Yulefest is a free event and is for all ages.
