“The Roche de Boeuf Festival has been a well-attended event in Waterville for the past 39 years,” states Waterville Chamber Executive Director Corina Pfleghaar. The Festival name, Roche de Boeuf, is the French translation meaning “Rock of Beef” or “Buffalo Rock,” which commemorates the rock which is still present in the Maumee River area of Waterville, in which the Ottawa Indians used as a staging ground for hunting and war times, as well as council grounds for peace treaties.
