Prairie du Chien Main Street and the Prairie du Chien Historical Society are kicking off the celebration of 350th anniversary of the Marquette and Jolliet expedition of the Wisconsin and Mississippi Rivers with a Fête du Voyageur event.
The evening will take place on Saturday, February 18, at the historic Dousman House. The experience will be an evening of exquisite food, entrancing music, and immersive historical storytelling.
Throughout the evening, musicians will play traditional instruments and sing the songs that would have been sung by the paddling voyageurs. Historian and master storyteller, Mike Douglas, will bring to life the passion and purpose of renowned explorers, Marquette and Jolliet. You will learn about the challenges they faced and conquered with the help of French-Canadian voyageurs and Native American tribes who lived along the Wisconsin and Mississippi Rivers.
The dinner will be a meal the voyageurs would have dreamed of: delectable hors d’oeuvres and a signature cocktail “French 76”. Dinner dishes including: succulent meat pie, wild rice with herbs, and more, heavenly French crepes for dessert, and an after dinner drink of coffee with Irish cream liqueur.
Reservations need to be placed by February 1 and can be made by calling 608-412-0187 or
