La Guiannee at Fort de Chartres

In a traditional New Year’s Eve celebration dating back to 1722, the La Guiannee singers will visit houses and Fort de Chartres in the early French town of Prairie du Rocher and sing for the residents. As part of the tradition, the residents provide refreshments for the singers at each stop. 

The event is open and free to the general public. It is cosponsored by Fort de Chartres, Les Amis, and the Prairie du Rocher La Guiannee Society. 

Location:
