History comes to life at Sutter Fort

Tickets are available for the 18th annual Sutter’s Fort Evening Living History Program. This popular theater-like program will take place Nov. 16 at Sutter’s For State Historic Park, 2701 L Street, in Sacramento.

The adventure begins when guests enter the candlelit fort. All the electric lights will be doused to enable visitors to truly feel the atmosphere of the past. The continuously evolving play will unfold as visitors peer into the fort’s rooms for five-minute “acts” that provide glimpses of life on the frontier. Living History volunteers will portray people of Sutter’s Fort going about their evening tasks as if it were November 1846.

Tall tales, gossip, rumors and evening work take place as visitors follow their lantern-carrying guide through the fort’s rooms and courtyards. At the end of the 1 1/2 hour tour visitors enjoy pie and cider or coffee with Capt. Sutter in the central building of the fort.

Tours begin every 10 minutes from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 per person. To make a reservation and for more information call (916) 324-7405. Space is limited to 15 persons per tour.

The Sutter’s Fort Living History Program is presented by California State Parks, in cooperation with the Sacramento Historic Sites Association.
