Events Description

Explore the encampment of Hudson’s Bay Company workers, Indigenous traders, Royal Engineers, Métis trappers and more as they swap stories, play music, and show off traditional skills.

2019 highlights include collecting trading cards from the different re-enactors (kids can even create their own!), a visit to the Washer Women’s laundry camp, and the Fur Trade Fashion Show on Sunday, August 4th at 12:30 p.m.

New this year, compete in our “Fort Feats of Strength” contest, an exciting old-fashioned relay race on Sunday August 4th at 2:30 p.m. Come with your team of eight adults (age 18+) or team up with other visitors on the spot. The champions will have their name displayed on site.

And of course, don’t miss the “Arrival of the Fur Brigades” canoe re-enactment by the river at 1 p.m. on the Monday, August 5th.
