Wassailfest logoChristmas on Broadway has been a beloved Christmas tradition in Eagle for more than a quarter century. Bringing the community together during the winter to meet, great and visit many local businesses. In recent years the Eagle Chamber has expanded the parade, added live music and a bonfire in the park.

This year Eagle is adding a WASSAILFEST!

What is Wassail (sounds like ‘wassle’)?

In Old English, the word meant ‘be you healthy’; it came to be known as hot mulled cider, traditionally drunk during wassailing, a medieval ritual intended to ensure a good cider apple harvest the following year.

What do you do during Eagle Wassailfest?

wassailmugDrink Wassail of course – to the ‘health’ of Eagle! From December 3-5, local Eagle businesses will serve up their own secret version of Wassail.

Guests are encouraged to taste at least 12 types of Wassail at different locations and fill their “12 Sips of Wassail Card.” Once the card is completed (each entry validated by the participating business) the first 100 guests can turn them in at Parade Central, 3rd & Broadway, on Saturday, December 5th, 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. in exchange for a commemorative Eagle Wassailfest mug.

The winning business will be awarded the coveted Eagle Wassailfest trophy, which is held for one year.
