What is Wassail?
A hot spiced cider served all over Frisco during Wassail Days
Frisco’s super fun celebration of all things winter and the holidays
What do you do during Frisco Wassail Days?
Drink wassail of course! From November 30 – December 9, 2018, local businesses serve up their own secret version of wassail. Guests are encouraged to taste at least 12 different types of wassail at 12 different locations and fill their “12 Sips of Wassail Card.” Once the “12 Sips” card is filled out guests can turn them in at the Frisco/Copper Information Center in exchange for a commemorative Frisco Wassail Days mug. The 2017 Frisco Wassail Days mug was a metal mug that featured an adorable winter fox. You’ll have to come to Frisco to see it though.
What else do you do during Frisco Wassail Days?
Frisco’s events throughout the week encourage some good clean holiday fun with a dose of magic and wackiness. Some of the highlights include a “Soup Cup Classic” with unlimited tubing and soup tasting at the Frisco Adventure Park and a tree lighting featuring 600 luminaries up and down Frisco’s Main Street.
