History comes alive at Fort Whoop-Up this summer, and guests are invited to step back in time and experience a taste of Life on the Whoop-Up Trail. Enjoy an evening of entertainment featuring actors from New West Theatre and hear intriguing stories about the Blackfoot, Métis, Canadians and American Whisky traders in the late 1800s. Feast fort style on a pioneer dinner highlighting locally-sourced foods. Break bread with the locals and new-found friends from around the world.

Includes a performance by New West Theatre actors, a guided tour by a costumed interpreter, a pioneer dinner of beef stew or bison chili, pan bannock, coffee or mint tea, one beer/wine or non-alcoholic drink with additional beverages available for sale. Experience what it would be like at night sitting around the fire listening to tales told by a fort trader. Enjoy making and roasting bannock on a stick topped with saskatoon berry jam while the stories are being told. Experience includes a gift shop discount of 10%.
