It’s Friday night in the French fortress town of Louisbourg, in the middle of the 18th century. Music and laughter spills out into the streets as villagers gather at pubs, restaurants and taverns. Conversation mingles with music, over a meal served on pewter dishes. Singing and laughter drifts through the open window of the tavern on the corner while lively tunes draw the dancers to fill the floor in the hall. Experience it all for yourself tonight at the Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site. This one-of-a-kind night on the town starts with an 18th century meal, then carries on, into the cobblestone streets for music, dancing and good times. As you travel from one reconstructed stone building to another, you’ll find music everywhere—songs in French, English and Gaelic, and tunes for toe-tapping and dancing. Bring comfy shoes and a sweater.
