Horicon Marsh Archaeological Festival

The Horicon Marsh Archaeological Festival, sponsored by the Rock River Archaeological Society, takes place at the Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center with the 2018 dates being October 13th and 14th. The Festival is constantly growing and offers something for all ages. There is no admission charge.

This very special weekend features speakers in the Visitor Center Auditorium on both Saturday and Sunday. Children’s activities such as corn grinding, bead collecting, making a necklace with a leather punch, and taking a ride on the Voyageur Canoe with family will be available. Fire starting and flint napping will be demonstrated for all to see. Local collectors with museum quality artifacts will be displaying on site, along with a Native American Tepee, Buckskinner’s encampment, and a Flute and Drum Circle activity. The Fox Of The River Voyageur Canoe will be giving Canoe rides on which the story of the Voyageurs will be shared and there will be Atlatl demonstrations where the public can try their hand at throwing the Atlatl. Venders offering jewelry, Native American art, and handmade items will be on hand. Delicious food created by Chef Anthony from Milwaukee will be offered and much more on the beautiful Horicon Marsh.

The Explorium, a “must see” for all, will be open with a small admission cost.

Times of the event are Saturday, October 13, 10 AM to 5 PM and Sunday October 14, 10 AM to 4 PM. Rain or shine the Festival will take place.
