The Fort de Chartres Winter Rendezvous is a weekend of reenactors in colorful period clothing, hand-made crafts, music, and delicious food. It also features 18th century camp and reenactors who participate in a muzzleloader woods walk shooting competition. Reenactors will trade goods, buy supplies, and some will take part in a shooting contest that requires them to walk through the woods and fire flintlocks at pop-up targets. The rendezvous is fun both for the participants demonstrating frontier life from 1700 to1820 and for visitors spending an autumn day wandering among the tents, campfires and historic French colonial fort.
