Description: Fort de Chartres State Historic Site presents a weekend of colorful clothing, hand-made crafts, period music and delicious food at the annual Winter Rendezvous. Soldiers, trappers, traders, and Native Americans (as portrayed by historic reenactors) will gather at the rendezvous. They’ll trade goods, buy supplies, and some will take part in a shooting contest that requires them to walk through the woods and fire flintlocks at pop-up targets. The rendezvous is fun both for the participants demonstrating frontier life from 1700 to1820 and for visitors spending an autumn day wandering among the tents, campfires and historic French colonial fort.

This event is hosted by Les Coureurs des Bois de Fort de Chartres and sponsored by Les Amis du Fort de Chartres, with additional support from Illinois Historic Preservation, part of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.

Free, donations appreciated
