Every winter since 1970
From February 17 to February 26, 2017, come visit Voyageur Park and our various official sites to bask in the joviality of French Canadian culture. Surrounded by great music, amazing foods and wondrous sights, you will have no choice but to re-embody the spirit of the voyageurs!
