Heavy rains cancel Fort de Chartres Rendezvous

Posted: Updated:

The annual Rendezvous at Fort de Chartres State Historic Site has been cancelled for the first time in its history, according to the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency.

The event held in Prairie Du Rocher, Illinois is cancelled for both Saturday and Sunday.

Organizers say heavy rains and flooded parking areas make it impossible for the site to accommodate crowds that attend the celebration of life in the 1700s in French-controlled Illinois.

This would have been the 43rd Rendezvous at the fort, located near Prairie du Rocher, Ill.
