Chippewa River Rendezvous
Mill Yard Park Cornell (Hwy 64 & Park Rd)
Campers, merchants and visitors are invited to join the Chippewa River Rendezvous as they gear up for their annual Time Line event hosted at the Mill Yard Park in Cornell. Admission is free for this two day event and is as educational and it is entertaining for the whole family. The thousands of attendees are able to walk along the banks of the beautiful Chippewa River and travel back through time to the late 1600’s and learn about the history of Wisconsin and the people who once lived here. From the Ojibwa to the French, English, Irish and Scotsmen, to the pioneers of the western frontier. You will see pre-1840 Fur trade and Civil War camps and Artillery. Visitors are able to sit with a blacksmith, a Spinner of wool or a Dyer or Cloth. They can try their hand at making an arrowhead or even fire. This event gives people the chance to experience life in a tipi, a single pole lodge or a Civil War sibly and learn how our forefathers made soap, clothing, bows and arrows, bullets and knives. Or visit with a trapper as he shares his knowledge of trapping, skinning, preserving hides and trading furs.
In addition, the Rendezvous Days provide primitive games and competitions for all ages including Whiskey Run, Fry Pan Toss, Hawk & Knife Throw, Liars Contest, Treasure Hunt in the Hay, and Cat and Mouse. There will also be prize drawings, silent auctions, historical demonstrations, worship service, delicious food and a large modern day flea market, car show, craft fair and “Bountiful” Farmers market as well as Historical Trader Row.
