Usher in the New Year with the sixth annual Wassail Celebration &  Feast at Powell Gardens. Also referred to as a wintertime drink of spiced wine or ale, the word wassail comes from the Anglo-Saxon greeting “wes hal,” meaning to “be of good health.” The tradition of “wassailing”  dates back to the 1500s and is for the purpose of encouraging a productive apple harvest.

This special dinner, prepared by Chef Ken Knight and Powell Gardens’ own Barb the Gardener will provide a history of the wassail tradition,  a celebratory ceremony in the apple orchard to scare off evil spirits and sing to the health of apple trees, live music, alcoholic and non-alcoholic wassail beverages, and a buffet-style  dinner featuring roast pig and side dishes made from produce harvested from the Heartland Harvest Garden. A seat at the King's table includes special seating with the King and Queen, festive crowns, plus a goodie bag prepared by Barb the Gardener.

Refund policy  A 100% refund will be given if the request is made 24 hours before the registration deadline(7 days before event date). No refunds will be made after the event takes place or after the enrollment deadline.
