See what life was like back in the 1700s and early 1800s at Fort Massac State Park’s Annual Fort Massac Encampment, which will be held at the historic site Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 19 and 20, 2019.
The 2019 Encampment will feature the thunderous boom of cannons and a tempting assortment of foods and activities from which to choose. It is more than an old-timey crafts fair, as it pays tribute to Illinois’ rich frontier history. Historical re-enactors and skilled craftspeople representing French, British and Americans gather at the Encampment to demonstrate the skills and lifestyles of early residents in this area.
Visitors to the two-day event view military camps and buck skinner lodges, craft stalls and trade blankets, and booths with period food and drinks. Battle re-enactments will again be held in the valley area, which Fort Massac Site Superintendent Chris McGinness says gives spectators the best view of the battle. The crowds will be able to watch the authentically-garbed troops face off in the Battle of Drouillard Creek.
