In addition to the daily events, there are two feature events are coming up this summer at Fort Langley National Historic Site.
If you like Grave Tales, you’ll love delving into our intriguing history on a summertime evening stroll through the town of Fort Langley. Our heritage interpreter will tell stories of early residents and how Fort Langley evolved from a Hudson’s Bay Company trading post to the bustling riverfront community it is today. To register, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name, number of people in your party, and phone number.
Every year in August, Fort Langley would traditionally prepare itself for the arrival of the fur brigades. These groups of men would be charged with transporting fur bales from up in North British Columbia all the way down through the mountains to the Fraser River and end at Fort Langley.
Nowadays we get to experience British Columbia’s early history at Fort Langley National Historic Site’s Brigade Days celebration. Explore the encampment of re-enactors showcasing the Hudson’s Bay Company era as they swap stories, play music, and show off traditional skills during the B.C. Day long weekend. Indigenous presenters will be sharing their knowledge throughout the day so be sure to come prepared to learn and have a blast while doing so!
Just like professional athletes, our brigaders have their own trading cards you can collect. But they won’t be giving them away for free: come ready to trade and see if you can collect a full set of Brigade Days cards!
Daily admission to Fort Langley National Historic Site is $8.50/adult, $7.00/senior, and FREE for youth 17 and under and for annual pass holders.
