Fort Crevecoeur Spring Rendezvous and Gathering
Fort Crevecoeur Rendezvous and Gatherings are an Educational Historic Event as well as a Craft Fair and Flea Market. Come out to the Park and take in the Historic Encampment where Period Re-enactors portray and teach the public about the lifestyle of the Fur Trade Period. There will also be food vendors, bake sale goods, and live music.
The Historic Encampment is in a separate part of the park from the Craft Fair and Flea Market where the Historic Fort Crevecoeur has been resurrected as to keep with the authenticity of the event. This is also the area where the Period Demonstrations and Period Traders will be selling Authentic and Handmade Period Replicas of items often traded and sold in the period..
Gates are open to the public Saturday and Sunday 9a – 5p. A small gate fee applies. All proceeds from the gate go towards the upkeep of Fort Crevecoeur Park.
