A Winter Dweller's Celebration

On Saturday, January 11, join us for A Winter Dweller’s Celebration, a gathering reminiscent of the French fur-trading days of Old Michigan, when the hardy voyageurs wintered in settlements telling stories, singing songs, and dancing. Bring a smile, hoot and holler, or just clap along. There’s something for everyone … and don’t forget yer dancin’ shoes!
