“Feast”
Review of Fort Ouiatenon

Fort Ouiatenon
Reviewed May 4, 2013 via mobile

Feast of the Hunters Moon is the only reason to visit. This takes place in the fall. There are about 500 to 700 booths open that sell food and items from the time period of Native American and French trading that went on in the area during pre colonial times.

Lots of reinactments and people in dress. Very fun and informational.

We try to go every year. You can park at Purdue's football parking lot and take the shuttle for free. Tickets are less if you get them online.

We visit Fort Quiatenon each year for the Feast of the Hunter's Moon. Fall festival that celebrates the French and Indian history of the area from the 18th century. We love the musical groups - old sea shanties and French songs... Lafayette Fife and Drum Corps (French Marines) and Voyageurs are some of our favorites. Food and authentic crafts are great. Since they added a tavern, there's something for everyone.

Fort Ouiatenon (Wee-teh-non) is a historical site sitting on the Wabash River located south of Purdue University. Settled by the French in the early-mid 1700's, the site is now akin to a large park with open fields, outdoor pavilions, etc. Although a bit out of the way compared to some of the other parks (Happy Hollow, Columbian Park) It is great for larger bbqs, nature hikes, and fair weather.

The Fort's blockhouse is open weekends from 1-5 p.m. May through September. Feast of the Hunters' Moon is a historical re-living, family attraction held every Fall usually late September.
