Join the Historical Society of Johnson Creek on Saturday, September 17, for a beautiful canoe and kayak fundraising event on the Rock River in Jefferson County.

A 3-4-mile event for any level of paddlers follows the same historic waterway on the Rock River that Timothy Johnson, the Village's founder, did in the 1800s, when he famously traveled on his way south from Watertown to Johnson Creek. There is a cost to enter and a cookout will also be available for a fee.
