Pere Marquette State Park
Illinois Route 100, Grafton
24th ANNUAL TWO RIVERS FAMILY FISHING FAIR
10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 7, 2014
Check out the Two Rivers Family Fishing Fair and find fun and educational activities for the entire family!
This event is hosted by Pere Marquette State Park, which is administered by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, and Two Rivers National Wildlife Refuge, which is administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
There is no charge to attend the fair or catch a fish. No license or fishing gear is needed. By participating in the fun activities, fair goers will learn knot tying, fish identification, fish cleaning, casting, and many other skills, plus win prizes!
We will be bringing back some favorite activities from previous years, including a 4,000 gallon aquarium stocked with many of the fish found in the Illinois River, the "Fetch-n-Fish" dog show, Camo the Clown, and the popular Trout Pond. There is a catch-and-release bluegill pond, where young anglers can have their photograph taken with their catch. Fredbird will make an appearance, the Lodge Boys folk band will be playing live, and there will be several new activities we hope families will enjoy.
This event is completely free and is possible thanks to our many sponsors and volunteers!
