What is Wassail? It is just a fussy Old English word for hot cider. Check out the delicious Wassail recipes at the participating Denton Main Street Association merchant locations around the historic downtown Denton Courthouse on the Square and beyond.
Make it a Wonderful Wassail Weekend and come sip and stroll through downtown. Wassail tasting is free and for all ages. You can still cast your vote on your favorite! Saturday the fun will also include some live music here and there on the square and beyond, as well as more Wassail stops to taste and select your favorite recipe!
In addition to the traditional Wassail Weekend tasting during the annual Denton Holiday Lighting Festival on Friday, Nov. 30 from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m, the Denton Main Street Association (DMSA) will expand hours for its Wassail Weekend to include Saturday, Dec. 1 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
