Rendezvous is a living history event filled with historical re-enactors, musicians, entertainers, and merchants who will set up camps and displays with presentations and demonstrations on military and civilian life from 1668-1840. Food, music, dancing, cannon firing, drum and fife corps, puppet shows, storytelling, crafts, and games will be just some of the fun things to see and do on Saturday and Sunday of the last full weekend of July. Among the many items of special interest are presentations by the Michigan Surveyor’s Reenactment Group who will display early surveying equipment and maps and discuss the methods used to survey Michigan and a free concert on the lawn of City Hall on Saturday evening; there’s something new every year, and this year will be no different!
We hope that you will all join us in learning about the history of Sault Ste. Marie: Michigan's First City.
