Visitors to the fort on Dec 10, 2010 got to see and hear the differences in the holiday celebrations of the season during the early settlement of Kentucky. The fort was by candlelight, with decorations in keeping with the traditions of the time -  Candle lanterns, bonfires, the Christmas Guns, food, and refreshments, music and dance. Unfortunately the event had to be canceled on December 11 due to inclimate weather. The event was sponsored by the Fort Boonesborough Foundation.
