Rate This Event

 

The annual Fort De Chartres Winter Rendezvous on November 2-3, 2019 at Fort De Chartres in Prairie du Rocher, Illinois.

This event is sponsored by Les Amis du Fort de Chartres, with additional event site support by the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency.

Fort De Chartres Winter Rendezvous

Experience life on the Illinois frontier as The Fort De Chartres Winter Rendezvous presents a weekend of colorful clothing, hand-made crafts, period music and delicious food at the Annual Winter Rendezvous. Reenactors dressed as soldiers, trappers, traders and Native Americans will gather at the rendezvous. They will trade goods, buy supplies and have fun before winter sets in. Many participants will take part in a shooting contest that requires them to walk through the woods and fire flintlocks at pop-up targets. This is a family-friendly event, so don’t leave anyone at home!

The rendezvous is fun both for the participants demonstrating frontier life in the 1700s and early 1800s, and for visitors spending an autumn day wandering among the tents, campfires and historic fort from another time.
