Wassail Weekend Details From Denton Main Street Association:
“Due to the overwhelming success of Holiday Lighting, and to further enhance downtown Denton’s holiday-related activities, Denton Main Street Association is excited to announce that Wassail Fest will expand to the Saturday following Holiday Lighting. In cooperation with the Holiday Lighting Committee, we’re excited to provide people the opportunity to partake in expanded weekend activities in a more relaxed atmosphere. This move will further and complement the already special destination Denton experience!”
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 6th, 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 7th, 2019 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. or until the Wassail runs out.
Friday night’s festivities will be the festival and tastings. Saturday will have some Wassail stops open, strolling musicians, and there will be some other activities that day with the Historic Homes Tour and some morning fun for the family at the Holiday Express Train, an event held by Denton County Friends of the Family.
