     Fort Cross Old Timey Adventures will be host to some holiday fun! Join us as we celebrate the beginning of the Christmas season near the idyllic mountain town of Julian!

     As a family, with friends, or on a date, it will be a cherished holiday memory for years to come!
Dip your own candle the old fashioned way! Yours to take home and keep! Make a Christmas Tree Ornament or holiday keepsake out of a real wood round that's also yours to keep! Help make real apple cider with an old time press, and we'll give you a taste! Delicious hot cider is the perfect thing to warm you up on a cold, wintry day! If that isn't enough, you can join in on a lively
Christmas Jug Band Show. That is sure to revive you and chase the chills away! Not a dancer? Pick up one of our easy jug band instruments and be part of the band! Be sure to visit our friends in the Petting Zoo, too! You'll meet the goats, sheep, pot belly pig, bunnies, guinea pigs, chickens, ducks, reptiles, and more!  Not enough fun yet? Then try your hand at a bit of tomahawk throwing! It's fun and exciting as you compete with your friends to see who can hit the most targets! And there's archery and slingshots too! No Christmas event is complete without singing Christmas carols! Which is exactly what we'll do as we take you on the Holiday Hayride! You'll see views of the surrounding mountains and countryside, as well as our organic lilac groves while you sit and enjoy the ride!

      If you would like to book a private group for these activities on a different date, please leave a message and let us know. Private groups require a minimum of 20 people. Great for Field Trips, Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, Church Groups, Family Gatherings, Holiday Parties, etc.
