The Beaver Club
October 2016 (TBD)
Wealthy fur trade merchants in Montreal founded the Beaver Club in 1785. It was an elite dining club with membership restricted to men who had wintered in the North American interior, often referred to as "Indian Country." This club provided a forum for retired merchants to reminisce about the risky and adventurous days of their youth. Meetings were held during the off-season of the fur trade. Around tables groaning with food, and with libations in hand, they would recall their days of wilderness travel.
The evening began formally, following specified rituals which included five traditional toasts. It would progress through tales, drinks aplenty, and of course music and singing. The celebrating often continued into the wee hours of the morning.
The Beaver Club recreates the sights and sounds of the original gala banquets held in Montreal during the fur trade era. Please join us for this unique and historical event.
