Event description

Description

Celebrating its 50th year, the annual Feast of the Hunters' Moon is a re-creation of the annual gathering of the French and Native Americans which took place at Fort Ouiatenon, a fur trading outpost established in 1717 and was the first European settlement in what would later be known as Indiana. It is held in early autumn on the banks of the Wabash River, four miles southwest of West Lafayette, Indiana. Celebrating the 300th anniversary of the fort's founding, it remained in existence from 1717 through the 1790s when the final remnants of it were destroyed by American troops. The Feast reflects the many time periods of occupation of the fort as well, from the Native Americans and the French, through the British and finally the Americans.

Thousands of participants re-enact the event creating a feast for your senses. Amazing period foods are offered for sale by more than 50 non-profit organizations. Period craftspeople and artisans demonstrate their trades while period "sutlers" sell their wares. Seven performance stages offer period music, dance, and other forms of entertainment throughout the weekend. So come and experience a unique and exciting festival that is the Feast of the Hunters' Moon!
