The banquet will take place on Tuesday, March 14, 2023, from 5:00 pm to 9 pm.

The event will immerse visitors into fur trading culture, circa 1816, at the largest living history site in North America, the Fort William Historical Park.

Guests will share in a traditional blessing and story followed by a hearty meal catered in heritage buildings. The evening will wind up with a Scottish ceilidh dance party with a live band.
