Lantern Tour: An Evening at the Fort | Fort Vancouver National Historic Site | Saturday, 27. January 2018

The "Lantern Tour: An Evening at the Fort" is a wonderful opportunity to experience the reconstructed Hudson's Bay Company's Fort Vancouver at night. As in past years, each ***** attending the program will carry their own candle lantern and tour with a Park Ranger through the reconstructed fort's Counting House, Fur Store, Chief Factor's House, Kitchen, and Bake House.

In each building, visitors will experience historical vignettes with costumed living history interpreters, including graduates of the park's Youth Volunteer Programs. Visitors will learn what activities would have occurred during the evening hours at Fort Vancouver, and enjoy a cup of hot cider at the end of the tour. These tours meet at the entrance gate to the reconstructed Fort Vancouver, 1001 E. Fifth St. All tours start at 7:00 p.m.

Reservations are required for all Lantern Tours. To make reservations, prospective attendees can call the bookstore at the park's Visitor Center, managed by the non-profit Friends of Fort Vancouver, at (360) 816-6216. Learn more at
