The Colonial through Western Fur Trade era of the 1650s through 1850s will come alive on Simmons Island. This family-friendly event is free.
Throughout the event, visitors will be able to go back in time to an era when Native Americans and fur traders gathered to exchange goods and services and to celebrate. Costumed reenactors talk about what life was like during the fur-trading era. Enjoy games, activities and entertainment for all ages including craft and trade demos, musical entertainment and juggling. Food, snacks, and souvenirs will be available from vendors. Park in nearby Kennedy Park (north of the event site) and take a free horse-drawn wagon shuttle to the event. This is the 19th annual event – organized by the Kenosha Public Museum.
