Bushcraft 1792
Saturday and Sunday, July 15-16
Noon to 5 p.m.

All there was here was wilderness in 1792. This wilderness was home to the Cree who lived in harmony with their environment and used their knowledge, skills and the abundant natural resources to live. For uninitiated and unskilled European traders however, it could be a fearsome and deadly place. Join us for 2 days of demonstrations, survival activities and hands-on learning. Discover what even day to day life in the fur brigades required from the historical re-enactors in the Edmonton House Brigade. What you learn today may be just what you need to survive the unexpected tomorrow .
