Friday, September 20 to Saturday, September 21
Step back in time to the 1600 – 1700’s in the Town of LaSalle, the oldest continuous European settlement in Ontario, and experience encampment life along the shores of the Detroit River.
Commemorating the history of the French Explorers, such as René-Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle, (who helped establish the early trading routes and settlement areas along the Detroit River), this festival will provide an authentic experience of the early French settlers and their encampment life, the Anishinaabe Natives and the Metis.
Rendez-vous Voyageur is a two-day event where history is brought to life through authentic re-enactments, interactive displays and a wide range of demonstrations! Come ready to explore a voyageur encampment, make a birchbark canoe, participate in an ancient lacrosse game, taste traditional cuisine, shop unique merchants and experience the French and Native cultures from 300+ years ago.
Rendez-vous Voyageur will offer a vast array of unique and exciting entertainment and activities for people of all ages to enjoy!
