Fall’s a great time to get out and enjoy the cool crisp air and see the beautiful foliage across southeast Minnesota.

It’s also time for the Big Island Rendezvous and Festival which starts this today, October 5 and goes through Sunday October 8.

Located at Bancroft Bay Park in Albert Lea, MN, the festival’s broken into two parts: Thursday and Friday are dubbed “education days”, and Saturday and Sunday are open to the public to see history come alive.

The entire event is an enormous re-enactment of life in early America, including food, music, and demonstrations of early American crafts:

Experience the fur trade period in the Voyageur encampment, Native American Tipi tours, the Scottish Clann Tartan, New Ulm Battery,
and many Early American crafts such as woodworking, blacksmiths, and candle making just to name a few.
Purchase period wares, taste authentic cuisine, and experience the sights and sounds of history.

Gates open at 9am each day, and tickets are just $12 for adults, $7 for agest 6-11, and kids 5 and under are free! Family passes go for $25.

For more information or special requests please contact Perry Vining at 1-800-658-2526 or pvining@smig.net, or you can like them on Facebook.
