The 2017 Calico Rock Mountain Man Rendezvous on September 8-9, 2017 at Rand City Park is hosted by the Calico Rock Museum and Visitor Center. Experience early American frontier life at the Calico Rock Mountain Man Rendezvous as you visit the rendezvous camp and reenactors wearing period dress. Rendezvous activities include Knife & Tomahawk Throwing, Period Bow Making, Spinning, Mountain Man & Mountain Mama Competition, Trapping & Pelting Demonstration, Stew Cooking Competition, Authentic Vendors, Period Tents & Clothing.
Calico Rock Museum has a new partner for the Rendezvous, the Early Arkansas Reenactors Association (EARA). The EARA members provide our encampment and demonstrate the everyday life skills of early settlers. Our Calico Rock Mountain Man Rendezvous is a sanctioned event of the Early Arkansas Reenactors Association because it is authentic. This group of dedicated men and women take reenacting seriously. They camp in period tents, dress in period clothing, and they live for the week just like the early fur traders and settlers did.
