An event every day that begins at 6:00pm, repeating until

We invite you to discover the legend of La Chasse-galerie (The Flying Canoe), a combination of French-Canadian and First-Nations legends told by various lost canoeists along a lit trail in the Mill Creek Ravine. Let your imagination fly with the many light installations among the trees and snow banks; Warm up with a cup of tea, conversation and drumming at the First-Nations Camp; Enjoy some French Canadian stories at the Trapper’s cabin; stop at the Métis camp to take in some music, learn some traditional Métis dance, and make bannock on the fire. A horse-drawn wagon will bring you from the Mill Creek Ravine to Rutherford School where you can savor some delicious treats at the Café Croissant organized by the students.

Then land at La Cité Francophone where there is an outdoor patio, live DJ, a snow slide and children’s activities. A variety of French and English musical performances will await you in the cabaret of La Cité, offering a bilingual experience through song and live programming. Discover a variety of aboriginal artists from the Rubaboo festival in the theatre.
