La Fête de St Jean Baptiste @ Fort Ouiatenon
Jun 22 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
This free living history event will showcase the material culture, life ways and skills of the French Occupation of Fort Ouiatenon circa 1740-1760. Additionally vignettes and activities of period Midsummer Festivals will be held to showcase what colonial french people’s may have done to celebrate religious holidays in the time.
 
While life was often hard and unforgiving on the edges of the fledgling colonial empires in North America, people still knew how to have fun. In France, and in the New French Colony of Canada which included today’s State of Indiana and Fort Ouiatenon, feast days of the Saints in the Catholic church often were used as excuses to stop working and to have a celebration. The most famous of these midsummer celebrations for the French Colonists, traditionally celebrated with food, bonfires, and in Canada an odd twist on the Maypole ceremony, is the Feast of Saint John the Baptist.
 
Parking is free and available on site!
