Whiskeytown National Recreation Area and Shasta State Historic Park Partner for the Annual “Old Time Holiday” Celebration
The National Park Service and California State Parks invite you to attend the annual
“Old Time Holiday” celebration on Saturday, December 7, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. This traditional event will take place at Shasta State Historic Park located along
Highway 299, just west of Redding, CA. There will be free entrance to the Courthouse Museum and the historic Litsch General Store. Activities will feature candle making, ornament making, musical entertainment, Backcountry Horsemen, treats, beverages and more, thanks to generous donations from the Friends of Whiskeytown.
Parking will be limited, and some areas in the state park remain closed for public
safety. Closed areas include Catholic Cemetery, area around the Brewery and the upper trail around the ruins. All closures are marked.
Western National Parks Association is having a 15% discount on merchandise
(excluding passes) all day at the Whiskeytown Visitor Center. There are many new
nature-related gifts available at the park store. Support Whiskeytown while doing your holiday shopping.
The events at Camden House will not take place this year, due to hazards in the Tower House Historic District. Tower House Historic District remains closed until conditions become safe and restoration efforts are completed.
For more information on the Old Time Holiday Celebration, please call the
Whiskeytown Visitor Center between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. at (530) 246-1225, or Shasta State Historic Park on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. at (530) 243-8194.
