Sutter’s Fort offers festive & fun candlelight tours on November 19

California State Parks, Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park (SHP) and Friends of Sutter’s Fort are proud to present festive and fun Candlelight Tours on Saturday evening, November 19, 2016. With all modern lights turned off and the iconic Fort lit by candlelight, guides will lead small groups of visitors into the Fort’s more intimate rooms for intriguing glimpses into the private lives of those who uprooted their families for a better life in early California.  

Each year, the popular Candlelight Tours offer a magical experience for individuals, families and groups of friends to “eavesdrop” on inhabitants of Fort rooms as they gossip about their neighbors and comment on the current events of 1846.  At the end of the enchanting tour, guests will receive a souvenir bandana and enjoy a piece of pie and hot beverage while discussing which 1846 story was the highlight of their memorable night.

With tours departing every 10 minutes between 6:30 and 8 p.m., Candlelight Tours cost $17 per person and are recommended for ages 8 and above.  Due to the popularity of the Candlelight Tours, advance reservations are recommended and can be purchased online at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2606024. For more information about this special holiday event or Sutter’s Fort SHP in general, please call 916-445-4422 or visit www.suttersfort.org.
