CXLD – Han Wi – Moon Dinner – August 22, 2020
August 22, 2020 6:30PM-9:45PM
A transformative experience at Wanuskewin.
Your evening starts near dusk at the park. Guests are invited to walk the land on a fourty-five minute guided tour with our senior staff to learn about the incredible Culture, history, and science of this land. A story that dates back more than 6400 years, twice as old as the Egyptian Pyramids.
As you arrive at the far side of the valley you will be welcomed by roaring campfires where you can cook fresh bannock over an open fire. Sip tea and reconnect with friends or family while enjoying a stunning view of the South Saskatchewan River and the Opimihaw Valley.
Dine on a decadent meal prepared by Chef Jenni Lessard. Your three course decadent meal features mouth watering Bison Tenderloin and many seasonal delights foraged from the valley below, including wild berries, mushrooms, sunchokes & more.
Finally, to complete the evening, listen to ancient star stories from a Star Story Teller while gazing out at a famous prairie sunset and beautiful Saskatchewan night sky.
