New Event! RENDEZVOUS VILLAGE

July 1-4. 

What is a Rendezvous? Rendezvous held in the western part of what is now the United States included a more diverse range of activities than their northern counterparts. Such a rendezvous might include several fur trading companies, and array of fur traders, mountain men and native Americans.  A substantial amount of deal-making and trading occurred at these rendezvous. These were often a temporary "town" of sorts with businesses which offered the fur trade workers and participants ways to spend their money on supplies and revelry. The emblematic type was a large annual rendezvous held in the Rocky mountains from 1825 until 1840. Much of the attendance of these consisted of mountain men who were fur trade participants who were experienced at living in the mountain back country. (Wikipedia)
