Living History Street Theatre
Daily, June 15 - September 1
Throughout the day characters entertain visitors with a series of short plays, bringing to life the events leading to the rise and fall of Fort Steele. On the streets and inside some Heritage buildings, our troupe of actors portray some of the individuals who lived in Fort Steele at the turn- of-the-19th-century. Visitors are encouraged to participate in the plays by heckling a politician, testifying in a trial, or cleaning black boards for the school marm. Living History performances are offered daily through the Summer Season.
May 1st - October 13th Daily at 11:00am & 2:00pm
Imagine if every community had this! A wildly popular tongue-in-cheek walking tour of the town introduces you to Fort Steele’s colourful residents, helps you peak behind doors, and shows you all their foibles. It’s true, the line between historical and hysterical is sometimes blurred but you can count on a member of the Fort Steele Ladies Auxiliary to give you the goods, and the dirt, with a little ‘creative license’ of course! Gossip Tours are 45 minute walking tours and are included with admission. They are offered twice daily in the spring, summer, and fall seasons.
