Pike River Rendezvous

August 1, 2015 - August 2, 2015

(262) 653-4140


Sat. 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., Sun. 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Reenactors encamped on Simmons Island add to the atmosphere of the Colonial through Western Fur Trade era of the 1650s through 1850s at the 16th Annual Pike River Rendezvous. This family-friendly event is free and open to the public.

Throughout the event, visitors will be able to step 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 at a rendezvous during the fur-trading era and will demonstrate the crafts and trades of the time.

Period foods, snacks and souvenirs will be available from vendors, and people are welcome to participate in games, crate crafts and try their hand at period household chores.

Pick up a schedule at any of the entrances.

Free parking is available at Kennedy Park (40th Street and 5th Avenue). Park your car at Kennedy Park and climb aboard a horsedrawn wagon for free shuttle service to Simmons Island Saturday and Sunday only.
