Holiday Cheers and Beers: An Adult-Only Event at Conner Prairie

cheers-and-beers-conner-prairieHoliday Cheers and Beers is a brand new, adults-only holiday event, hosted by Conner Prairie in Fishers, Indiana. It takes place Thursday, Dec. 12, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.

This fun event, which is presented by the Conner Prairie Horizon Council, a young professionals group, is about having fun in the present-day, by experiencing Christmas as it was celebrated in the past, during a much earlier and simpler period in American history.

Guests will enjoy hors d’oeuvres supplied by Bistro 226, a Bargersville restaurant known for its “rustic fine dining” menu. Sun King Brewing Company, an Indianapolis-based craft brewery specializing in seasonal and specialty beers, will provide craft beers. And for an elegant touch, wines from the Douglas Hills label will be served by the glass.

After food and drink, take a fun, candlelit stroll through 1836 Prairietown, a section of Conner Prairie that allows guests to experience a thriving pioneer town as it existed in 1836, and to gain insight into how folks celebrated Christmas in the early 19th century. Inside the Golden Eagle Inn, for example, guests are invited to participate in sausage-making demonstrations, and sample beer from Union Brewing Company.

Other fun activities include a party at the Campbell home, a stroll through Gingerbread Village, and a free photo booth complete with props and fun, period costumes.
