The Great Louisbourg Sleepover

On August 19, we are inviting people to come and enjoy a unique evening at the Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site. Guests will be camping on site, in the area of the King’s Bastion, for a special Louisbourg Great Sleepover. The evening starts at 5:00 p.m. just as the site closes for regular visitors.  

 There will be a game where participants can test their knowledge and win prizes in the Bigot Theatre and live entertainment with the talented band, “Gravel Road”. Food and drinks will be available for purchase. People who are interested will have the chance to join a team of paranormal activities investigators and maybe find evidence of ghosts. Of course, there will be a camp fire, stories and music are always welcome.

 The next morning, breakfast will be served in the Grandchamp restaurant.

 Louisbourg Great Sleepover Price:

$56 (plus tax & service fees) per person, includes your camping fees, live entertainment on Saturday night and on Sunday.

 The Louisbourg Great Sleepover is part of the celebration of the Fête de Saint-Louis. This feast was traditionally observed in 18th century Louisbourg and celebrates St. Louis, patron of the French. The theme of the Fête is “Eat, Drink and be Merry”! As it was in the past, the day will include special military demonstrations, “residents” showing their best fineries in a procession and special food displays.
