Event details

Enjoy a relaxing evening on the waters of Monee Reservoir. Watch the sunset and listen to the natural sounds as they evolve from day into night. Bring your own craft or we’ll provide everything you need, including a life jacket, paddle and your choice of a canoe or kayak. Once off the water, hang by the fire and enjoy the beverages of your choice (BYOB, but beer and wine only, please, for alcoholic drinks).
