It's one of our most favorite things of the year! We've been going to The Mountain Man Rendezvous for a few years now and I tell you, it's a must.
Stephanie and I are still ridiculously infatuated with the Mountain Man Rendezvous.
So much that Stephanie dressed her cute family the appropriate clothing. There are bunch of reasons why we love this event.
I believe that most of the items you see at the Rendezvous have to be handmade.
I'm such a sucker for anything handmade.
It seems you can almost buy anything, like a bucket for a toilet. I've bought two wool blankets from one of the shops the last two years. They aren't handmade, but they are gorgeous and have a history. Go and find the blanket booth, he was on the far east field. Be sure to haggle the pricing on everything! It's what they do, it's all about the deal and the trading.
You can even camp out at the Fort. You can rent teepees (I'm not sure who you contact.) or bring in your RV and camp out for the weekend.
I don't know if Benjamin Franklin will be there, but he sold letterpress copies of the Constitution for $4.
Steph's kids loved their bow and arrows, I bet yours would too!
Don't forget about the food! Some of the lines can get long, so don't want until you are starving to get food.
The ribbon potatoes are always a good option.
Utah is part of the Wild West, so you should add this to your bucket list!
It only happens once a year, so be sure to add it to your things to do in Utah.
