Arts of the Fur Trade 2015

November 7, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Arts of the Fur Trade Fort Nisqually


Blacksmiths hammering iron, carpenters shaping wood, and spinners transforming wool are examples of the 19th century crafts in action during “Arts of the Fur Trade” at Fort Nisqually Living History Museum.

Dozens of re-enactors will bring the Fort to life as they share their talents and creations. There will be blacksmithing, cooking, spinning, basket weaving, candle making, woodworking, sewing, knitting, and a variety of music. Families can try their hand at making rope, pressing apples to make cider, and playing games of the era.

Admission is $5-$8, and children age 4 and younger are admitted free.
