Picnic to serve up food, music, culture

  • Print

Individuals with an appetite for culture and tradition can join Festival du Voyageur for a colourful picnic to celebrate the upcoming national Culture Days event.

The organization is inviting community members to wear their voyageur sashes (ceintures fléchées) and attend an outdoor picnic on Sat., Sept. 28 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Sculpture Garden at 219 Provencher Blvd. in St. Boniface.   

Organizers say the festivities will include free musical performances by Alexandre Belliard and Pierre Freynet, as well as food for purchase from the Gibraltar Dining Corporation.

There will also be costumed interpreters from Fort Gibraltar on-site, who will be organizing a trading camp featuring necklaces, blankets, furs and other items that were traded during the fur trade era.

Visitors will also get the chance to help make a collaborative art piece that will be used as a backdrop for a stage set to be used in one of the tents at next year’s Festival du Voyageur.
