Join the fun at the 39th Annual Kampsville Old Settlers Days on the Kampsville Riverfront in Kampsville, Illinois. Kampsville Old Settlers Days depicts the life and times of the early settlers in Calhoun County. Pioneers crossed the Illinois prairie in covered wagons in the early 1800s and settled along the majestic scenic bluffs of the Illinois River bank, the setting for Old Settlers Days. That same Kampsville Riverfront comes to life each year on the second weekend in October where teepees and tents will fill the park for a fun-filled weekend as we honor the past and enjoy the present.

Kampsville Old Settlers Days is held on the banks of the beautiful Illinois River and features both Mountain Men and Civil War encampments and primitive skills demonstrations throughout the weekend. These demonstrations include activities such as soap making, blacksmithing, woodworking, flint knapping, jewelry making, bow building and more. There will be live entertainment each day from noon to 5:00 p.m. and artisans and traders selling their wares.
