On Saturday, June 1, 2019, the past will come alive at Fort Rosalie. Admission is Free! From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. living historians will show and tell engaging stories
about the history of Fort Rosalie, the people lived there, and native peoples who lived nearby. See French, Spanish, British, and American soldiers in person! Speak with colonial women as they demonstrate frontier life! Additionally, David Slay of Natchez National Historical Park will do ranger talks on the fortifications
and the uniforms on the 18th century.

Visitors can park at the Natchez Visitor Reception Center at 640 S. Canal Street or park along the bluff downtown and walk to Fort Rosalie along Canal or Broadway streets. The two pedestrian entrances to the site are at the corners of DA Biglane
and S. Canal Street (at the old Log Cabin) and at the corner of Green and S. Canal streets across from the Old South Trading Post.

The Fort Rosalie site at 528 South Canal Street is open to the public from dawn until dusk every day, with picnic tables and limited parking. New wayside exhibits have been installed at the site with text in both French and English. For more information, please contact David Slay by phone at 601-446- 5790 ext. 19 or by email at david_slay@nps.gov. Rain will cause this event to be rescheduled.
