The Sibley Historic Site has partnered with the Friends of the Sibley Historic Site and the French-American Heritage Foundation to throw a celebration in honor of the Fete de St. Jean Baptiste, and you’re invited!
Traditionally, June 24 is the feast of St. John Baptiste, a French-Canadian holiday celebrating the patron saint of Canada. To celebrate French-Canadian / American Heritage, this rendezvous will be held on the grounds of the Sibley Historic Site, where Jean Baptiste Faribault's house stands. Born in Quebec, Faribault worked at multiple fur posts around the Midwest and first settled in Minnesota around 1805.

On-Site activities will include music, costumed interpreters, children’s games, an evening fire with marshmallow roasting, and stationed historical guides to answer any of your questions. Please bring your own chairs and picnic basket to better enjoy all this event has to offer!
