Fort Gibraltar History Tours
We invite you to learn about Fort Gibraltar’s influence over the cultural development of the Red River settlement. Delve into the lore of the French Canadian voyageurs that paddled across the country, transporting trade-goods and the unique customs of Lower Canada into the West.
Through hands-on demonstrations and authentic crafts, learn about the formation of this unique community nearly two hundred years ago. Costumed interpreters will guide your class back in time to the year 1815 to a time of immeasurable change in the Red River valley.
Vist the Fort's trading post, workshop, blacksmith's shop and choose two additional activities: giant sash weaving, bannock roast, hatchet throwing, fur trade game or musical spoons.
Include an authentic French-Canadian lunch or dinner in the main Fort building served by staff dressed in period costumes for a truly unique experience!
