Step back and experience life at the 18th century French settlement of Roma at Three Rivers National Historic Site. The 2022 season offers a full schedule, including guided tours of the site, quill writing, heritage walks, Roma trails, toys and games from the 1700s, as well as an enhanced restaurant menu. 

August events and authentic experiences include Sea Sand & Fire on Tuesdays at 7 pm. Featuring an evening of colourful stories, food and music around a campfire in view of the Montague River, visitors can learn how to play the spoons and accompany the musician for a tune or two.

On Thursdays in August, from 9:30-11:30 am, visitors can experience Fed with Bread. Prepare a batch of bread that is then baked in the authentic brick outdoor oven. 

Forage with foodie Anne Gallant August 13 from 1:30–3:30 pm. Visitors can acquire the skills to forage safely, harvest, prepare and taste plants, and take home the fruit of their labour: chanterelles (if it rained), dry sea lettuce, and sea shore plant identification.  

Dinner with Jean Pierre Roma offers a taste of 1700s French Cuisine created by Chef Robert Pendergast August 18 at 6:30 pm. Music will be provided by Acadian musicians Emmanuelle Leblanc and Patrick Miousse.
