What's Cooking? at Fort Nisqually

Event Date: 

June 15, 2013 - 11:00am to 5:00pm

The smell of campfires, sizzling bacon, and simmering stews will greet visitors during “What’s Cooking?” at Fort Nisqually Living History Museum, June 15, 11am-5pm. This year, celebrity guest judge Dick Stein, co-host and producer of KPLU’s Food for Thought, will help select the winner of the event’s cooking competition and award the “Golden Skillet.” The Fort’s re-enactors will cook on a wood stove and over numerous campfires to prepare a variety of 19th century dishes.


Fort Nisqually comes to life with the sound of music

Sing-along with the Pacific Northwest Sacred Harp Singers from 2-4 pm on Saturday, February 2 at Fort Nisqually Living History Museum in Point Defiance Park. The performance is free with Fort admission.

Sacred Harp singing, also called fasola singing or shape-note singing, is a community musical and social activity, emphasizing participation, not performance. Everyone is invited to come and sing (or just listen), regardless of musical experience or ability.
