5th Annual WASSAILFEST!
What is Wassail (sounds like 'wassle')?
In Old English, the word meant 'be you healthy'; it came to be known as hot mulled cider, traditionally drunk during wassailing, a medieval ritual intended to ensure a good cider apple harvest the following year.
What do you do during Eagle Wassailfest?
Drink Wassail of course – to the ‘health’ of Eagle! From December 1-3, local Eagle businesses will serve up their own secret version of Wassail.
Wassailers are encouraged to taste at least 12 types of Wassail at different locations and fill their “12 Sips of Wassail Card.” Once the card is completed (each entry validated by the participating business) guests are encouraged to take their cards to the Dusty Boot Roadhouse by 4:00 p.m. to receive a commemorative Wassailfest mug from Circle-A Auto Repair and a token for a free burger from the Dusty Boot Roadhouse - while they last!
New to WassailFest this year is the Turtle Bus! The fun will begin Friday at 3pm at Bonfire Brewing. Everyone is invited to hop aboard the Turtle Bus and be whisked away to sample Wassail at participating businesses throughout Eagle. The Turtle Bus will be looping between the different business districts and Bonfire Brewing throughout the evening.
The winning business will be awarded the coveted Eagle Wassailfest trophy, which is held for one year.
