Spirit of Vincennes Rendezvous
August 22 - August 23
The George Rogers Clark National Historic Park, the Spirit of Vincennes, Inc., and the NWTA again join to create this regional event. The 8th Regiment of Foot proudly serves as the host unit.
See http://www.spiritofvincennes.org for the event schedule, information, etc. The Spirit of Vincennes Facebook page also has much information and event pictures.
Participants, with 1000s of spectators, can enjoy stroling and onstage musicians and entertainment. 100+ merchants, traders, and an expanded “scoundrels alley” add to the fun. Beware naval press gangs!
Straw and firewood are provided.
On Saturday, a catered dinner is provided.
Morning coffee can be found at the visitor center!
Ice will be sold by the Boy Scouts.
Showers are available at Rivet High School, across the street from the camp.
Along with area motels, Vincennes University offers dormitory housing (byob – bring your own bedding).
For other VU housing concerns:
On Sunday evening, at dusk (about9:20), is the candlelight walk and remembrance of participants in the historic events at Vincennes.
We look forward to seeing our friends and fellow enthusiasts this 2020 reenacting season!
Possibilities for the camp are always being explored. Please send your suggestions, special needs, etc. to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
