Fort Nisqually Living History Museum offers a wide variety of special events throughout the year. Your membership in the Fort Nisqually Foundation allows you to enjoy them all (with the exception of the Candlelight Tour and Friday at the Fort) for one low price.

In addition, the Fort Nisqually Foundation sponsors two fundraising events - Friday at the Fort and Bonfires, Beaver Pelts and Bogeymen: Halloween Storytelling. We encourage you to attend them all as each offers a unique and special look at Fort Nisqually's story and the history of the mid-1800s.

Fort Nisqually Foundation members are also encouraged to attend the Members Only Exhibit openings three times a year when Fort Nisqually changes their fascinating temporary exhibit area in the fort's Education Building.

5th Annual Friday at the Fort

Fort Nisqually's special events have something fun to offer everyone!

We invite you to EXPERIENCE history - touch it, smell it, hear it.

At Friday at the Fort we invite you to support Fort Nisqually by enjoying fun music by The Shy Boys and enjoying local refreshments. All proceeds support the educational programs of Fort Nisqually Living History Museum.
