The Sault Ste. Marie Canal National Historic Site is now offering Victorian Tea Party themed birthdays. Parties are held at the historic Superintendent's Residence and consist of a program led by costumed interpreters and the experience of participating in a tea party complete with fine china and tea service.

Children will learn about life at the Canal at the turn of the last century by participating in Victorian themed crafts and games. There will be an opportunity to dress in period clothing and explore aspects of life in Victorian times including the strict table etiquette! Time for cake and gift opening is included in the two-hour long program.

For more information or to book a birthday party please call the Sault Canal at 705-941-6205.

Have a real tea party with your friends
