Pike River Rendezvous

August 4, 2018 - August 5, 2018

Time TBA
Pike River Rendezvous at Simmons Island Park

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 American Indians and fur traders gathered to exchange goods and services and celebrate. Costumed reenactors will talk about what life was like during the fur-trading era, and will demonstrate the crafts and trades of the time.

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

The Pike River Rendezvous is located on Simmons Island (50th Street at Kenosha's Lakefront). Free parking is available at Kennedy Park (40th Street and Fifth Avenue).

This is the 21st annual event.
