Due to the current Illinois Department of Natural Resources State Park and Historic Site closures, Les Amis du Fort de Chartres has announced the rescheduling of the 50th Annual Fort de Chartres Rendezvous that was to be held June 6 – 7. The new date of Sept. 12 – 13 was announced, allowing for the reopening of Illinois state sites and a review of any new potential plans for state site fall events.
Fort de Chartres State Historic Site’s annual Rendezvous is the largest gathering of its kind anywhere in the Midwest. The event attracts many thousands to the site during this two-day special event. The event will be expanded this year, in celebration of its golden anniversary and in recognition of the 300th anniversary of the first Fort de Chartres. This annual event is presented by Les Coureurs des Bois de Fort de Chartres and sponsored by Les Amis du Fort de Chartres. The 50th Annual Fort de Chartres Rendezvous is made possible through the dedication of the fort’s many volunteers and support organizations and through donations by businesses and individuals in our surrounding communities.
