Visit Smeck Park on Saturday, December 11 for the reenactment, “A Christmas Evening on the Frontier.”

It is the winter of 1797-98. In a tavern, two proprietors have been listening to the stories of their travel-weary guests. While listening and regaling others with tales of their own, they are finishing up the day-long preparations for a Christmas evening feast! The rooms are full of the scents of roasted ham, vegetables, and mince pie – all made over the open fire.

Come see and be a part of this recreation of period-correct holiday traditions including cooking techniques. Learn 18th-century lore where some myths may be debunked. Play tavern games, listen to songs and sing carols with “Captain Joseph Ogle’s Company.” To learn more or to follow this event, visit Facebook.
