A new fundraiser in support of Festival du Voyageur will heat up the summer season at Fort Gibraltar.
Le Grand Régal Cajun is set for June 23 and will include Cajun-style cuisine for a culinary and cultural twist.
Menu fare includes corn on the cob, potatoes, shrimp, crawfish and sausage, accompanied by fresh vegetables. The meal will be served on long tables in the middle of Fort Gibraltar in order to enhance the communal, cultural and informal feel of a typical Louisiana party.
Aside from the food, the night includes interactive games in the Fort cabins, a silent auction in the Maison du Bourgeois, themed bars and a special performance from Winnipeg’s very own The Dirty Catfish Brassband. More activities will be announced in the coming weeks.
The event benefits Festival’s Francofonds fund. Tickets to the fundraiser are currently on sale for $125 at heho.ca, by calling (204) 237-7692 or at the Festival du Voyageur office, 233 Provencher Blvd.
