Have a history revival at Sequim rendezvous

An exciting era of the nation’s past comes to life as the Green River Mountain Men present their annual Rendezvous at the Peninsula Longrifle’s location just south of Sequim, from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday-Sunday, Aug. 31-Sept. 1.

 

This reenactment of the annual fur trappers’ gatherings in the early 1800s features historical-style campsites, traders and period-dressed re-enactors with fascinating things to see and hands-on opportunities for the entire family.

 

Activities include black-powder shoots, primitive archery, seminars on a wide variety of fur trade skills and lore, Dutch oven cooking competition, music, storytelling, children’s activities, traders’ row and much more.

 

Admission is free to come and look around. Shooter’s fee is $20 per person for ages 13 and up.

 

The rendezous site is on Slab Camp Road, just off Lost Mountain Road.
