A visit to the Tesoro Cultural Center’s annual 1830s Rendezvous on Saturday & Sunday, September 16 & 17 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (both days) takes us from the 21st century back to the frontier days. Meet celebrated Southwestern artists selling and demonstrating their crafts. Interpreters in period dress re-enact and explain the lives of 19th century trappers, traders and frontiersmen.
The 1830s Rendezvous encampment features such traditional mountain man demonstrations as a tomahawk throw, hide scraping, primitive fire-making and Dutch-oven cooking. For entertainment, there’s music and dancing from Rex Rideout, Spurs of the Mountain West and Fandango. Join a tour of this acclaimed restaurant.
