Each June, Fort de Chartres State Historic Site hosts the largest rendezvous in the Midwest with over a thousand participants, hundreds of encampments, and thousands of visitors joining in on the festivities. Based on the traditional French fur trapper’s rendezvous where trappers and traders would meet at a predetermined location to trade furs for necessities, the rendezvous was the highlight of the fur trapper’s year and is the highlight of Fort de Chartres’s extensive calendar of historical events and activities.

We'll take the scenic roads to the rendezvous.

Location Fort de Chartes State Historic Site, Illinois
