A Mountain Man Rendezvous (1825–1840) was an annual gathering at various locations held by fur trading companies, at which trappers and mountain men sold their furs and hides and replenished their supplies. Our modern re-creation offers a flag raising ceremony at 10:00 am, bake oven demonstrations, shops selling 18th and early 19th century style wares, a black powder shoot on Saturday, and a bow shoot on Sunday.
Plenty of space to social distance. Proper safety and hygiene protocols will be observed.
