Rendezvous CampJoin the Tesoro Cultural Center Saturday, September 16 and Sunday, September 17, for our 16th Annual 1830s Rendezvous to commemorate the American Mountain Men and Frontier Women of the Bent’s Fort era (1833-1849). Be ready to try your hand at high adventure activities including tomahawk throwing, hide scraping, and flint and steel fire starting. Watch black powder shooting, blacksmithing and other demonstrations on the skills and crafts that were necessary to survive during the American Fur Trade era. Learn firsthand how Mountain Men lived and the tools, supplies and weapons they carried and used. The 1830s Rendezvous is a special engagement weekend of our Living History Experience and honors those committed to excellence in historical interpretation and craftsmanship. Our honored guest for 2017 and award recipient is John M. Carson, Park Ranger – Interpretation, Bent’s Old Fort.
