Overview

A cornucopia of 19th century skills and crafts are on display during Arts of the Fur Trade on Saturday, November 5, 11 am-4 pm. Dozens of the Fort’s re-enactors demonstrate and share their knowledge of period skills such as spinning, weaving, beading, blacksmithing, woodworking, cooking, instrument construction, and music. Guests of all ages may try their hand at various creative tasks making rope, pressing apples to make cider, and dipping candles. Guests also have the opportunity to purchase some of the unique, handcrafted goods made by Fort artisans. They make a great gift!
