Christmas at the Fort: 19th-century traditions
December 16, 1 p.m.–3 p.m.
Fort Towson Historic Site will host Christmas at the Fort on Saturday, December 16, from 1 to 3 p.m. The theme for 2023 is “Traditions.”
Guests can learn about 19th-century traditions and meet a soldier in an 1860s military camp who is anxiously waiting to receive packages from home. A living history interpretation will depict some of the long-lasting Christmas traditions that continue to be practiced today, and others that are long forgotten. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be warming up to a cozy fire in the sutler store, giving out cookies and toys.
Visitors to the site, which was originally established in 1824, can also take a tractor tour of the grounds and play historic games.
Christmas at the Fort is a FREE event. For more information, call 580-873-2634 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The Fort Towson Historic Site is located at 896 N. 4375 Rd. in Fort Towson.
