Experience the rich history of Indiana at the Feast of the Hunters' Moon, where you can step back in time and relive 18th-century life at Fort Ouiatenon - the first fortified European outpost in the region.
This historic reenactment is a recreation of the annual fall gathering of French and Native Americans at the fur-trading outpost in the mid-1700s. Held annually in early autumn on the banks of the Wabash River, four miles southwest of West Lafayette, Indiana, thousands of participants come together to create an immersive feast for the senses.
Smell the wood smoke, hear the rifles being fired, and savor authentic food as you explore the continuous, free programming held on five stages. Enjoy French and Native American music and dance, fife and drum corps performances, military drills and demonstrations, fashion shows, games, and contests at the 50th celebration of this event.
Special hands-on activities include the children's trade blanket, costume try-on, candle-dipping, story-telling, bead bracelet making, cross-cut sawing, and tomahawk throwing. Come and savor the past at the Feast of the Hunters' Moon.
