The countdown to Festival du Voyageur is already underway and to get you in the spirit of things, Voyageur Training Camp is opening this weekend.

On Saturday and Sunday, Saison Voyageur will host Voyageurs at the Historic Port at The Forks to share stories by the fireside. Guests will be put to the test in a series of voyageur sports and mind-bending challenges.

Other activities include…

Voyageur Photo Booth — 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.
Get Voyageur’d. See what you would have looked like 200 years ago. A team of voyageur stylists will dress you with the latest in fur trade fashion — from coats made of blankets to bright red toques.

Up, Down and All Around — 2 p.m.
Help weave the biggest sash in the world. The sash will be hung from the train bridge.

Voyageur Games — 3 p.m.
Test your fur trade gaming skills with a group of fun-loving voyageurs.

The fun will run until 4 p.m. daily.

Festival du Voyageur is February 18-27. Enter to win two daily passes.
