Recreating the original fur traders’ supper club in Montreal, the Beaver Club Gala is an authentic dining experience with fine food and period music. Proceeds benefit the education and public programs of The Canadian Canoe Museum.
Dress code is black tie. Formal wear circa 1800, fur trade, and highland garb, are encouraged, but optional. In the spirit of the fur trade, which owed its success to a unique collaboration between First Nations and European cultures, please be respectful of cultural traditions when dressing for the event. You can purchase costume accessories at the door of the event, from our shop at the Museum, or from our online store.
