The third annual Rendez-vous at Ste. Anne Parish de Detroit will be held on Sunday, September 15 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Rendez-vous is a festival celebrating the founding heritages of Detroit: the French, French Canadians, Native Americans and Metis who came together at this place they named “the straits” — now a major city in the U.S.
Ste Anne Parish de Detroit, founded by the French just days after their landing in Detroit, holds the distinction of being the second oldest continuously operating parish in the country and is a national landmark.
At the Rendez-vous you’ll experience French Canadian and Native American music, dancing, food, historical and cultural exhibits, 18th century children’s activities, a French Canadian genealogy tent, a beer and wine tent, raffles and re-enactors who bring history to life dressed as dashing voyageurs and folks who lived in 18th century Detroit.
We are in need of sponsors to help us facilitate this very educational and fun event. People of all ages and backgrounds enjoy this French and English bilingual event that focuses on the French colonial history of Michigan and the impact the French, Native American and Metis have had on the Detroit River region, but we need your help.
Below is a form with a number of sponsorship and donation opportunities. With people coming from all over the Midwest, Ontario and Quebec, the Rendez-vous is the ideal venue to promote your business or service while supporting the historical legacy of Michigan and Detroit.
