Coming Events

Winter Festival - Victorian Christmas

Sunday December 8th - Noon to 4pm

Many of our modern holiday traditions started in the Victorian Era and you can learn all about it at this year's Winter Festival. Participate in holiday traditions from around the world with activities, crafts, and much more.  The Storytellers Network and the Lower Columbia woodcarvers will continue sharing their holiday tales with visitors, and Father Christmas, straight out of the Victorian era, may even be visiting!  Join the fun at this free event.  Children must be accompanied by an adult.
