Sutter’s Fort Celebrates 4th of July Weekend With a Bang!

California State Parks and Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park (SHP) are proud to present special celebratory activities sure to grab the attention of guests who visit the Fort over the 4th of July holiday weekend, July 4 & 5, 2015.   Black powder demonstrations of muskets, rifles and other historic fire arms will be offered periodically throughout the day on Saturday and the crowd-favorite firing of Sutter’s cannon is scheduled at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. on Sunday.

In addition to the weapon demonstrations and “big booms” happening both days of the holiday weekend, guests will be treated to readings of the US and Bear Flag Declarations of Independence plus docents in period attire will perform and help Fort visitors participate in interpretive activities such as gold panning, laundry duties and using a carry-yoke to haul water.

The 4th of July holiday weekend is a perfect time for interested guests to visit Sutter’s Fort SHP before it is closed to the public for renovations for one month beginning on July 13, 2015.
