Voyageur Rendezvous

Sunday, May 16, 2021

Join us at Grand Kankakee Marsh* and peek into the lives of those who would have lived or traded along the waterways of the Midwest more than 250 years ago when the marshes were a source of valuable furs desired by merchant traders to take back to Europe. Meet Native Americans, French-Canadian canoe men, called Voyageurs, British and French militia, early settlers, and many others. Event includes canoe races, lifestyle demonstrations, music, and more! There's plenty for people of all ages to see and explore! *In the event the river is too high the event will be relocated to a dryer location. If needed, this will be announced the week of the event. Please double check before heading out.
