Denton Wassail Weekend 2019

Downtown Denton

What is Wassail Weekend? It is just a fussy old English word for hot cider. Some downtown merchants will stir up their best recipe to give free tastings for all ages during the festivities of the annual Denton Holiday Lighting Festival, which falls on Friday, December 6, 2019, and tastings will be served from 5:30 - 8:00 p.m. In addition to Friday, more downtown merchants will give free tastings while you shop and dine downtown on Saturday, December 7, 2019 from 11 am to 4 pm, or until the Wassail runs out.  

The Holiday Express Train is a magical day of excitement beginning with a train ride on the Holiday Express followed by brunch and family-friendly activities at the "Winter Square".  When you finish up, bring the family around downtown for some free Wassail tastings and vote on your favorite.  Click here for information and to get tickets for Holiday Express Train.

Tour the beautiful historic homes of the Oak-Hickory Historic District after some free Wassail tasting on Saturday.  The tour is Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m.  The featured homes, representing several architectural styles, were built between 1895 and 1917 in an area within walking distance of the downtown square.

We look forward to seeing you at Wassail Stops during the weekend.
