Wassail Days

What is Wassail Days?

Wassail Days is Frisco’s super fun celebration of all things winter and the holidays, celebrated by local businesses offering unique wassail recipes to sample.

What is Wassail?

Wassail is a hot, spiced cider served over the holidays and shared among friends and neighbors.

What do you do during Frisco Wassail Days?

Drink wassail of course! From Saturday, November 27 – Sunday, December 5, 2021, 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 redeem it at the Frisco/Copper Information Center for a commemorative Frisco Wassail Days mug, while supplies last.
