Join us on Friday June 24th for Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day, celebrated in Quebec each year for more than 4 centuries! Named after the patron saint of Quebec, this French-Canadian holiday typically involves music, bonfires, and drinks!
To celebrate Minnesota's French-Canadian heritage, the fête will be held on the grounds of the Sibley Historic Site, where Jean-Baptiste Faribault's house stands. Born in Quebec in 1775, Faribault worked at multiple fur posts around the Midwest and first settled in Minnesota around 1805.
On-site activities will include music and an evening fire with marshmallow roasting, and stationed historical guides to answer any of your questions.
More details to come.
