Rate This Event

 

Take in the Baraboo River Rendezvous on August 30 – September 1, 2019 at Spirit Point in Baraboo, Wisconsin. This Labor Day weekend, characters from a distant period in Wisconsin’s past will come to life when Baraboo’s Spirit Lake Mountain Men and friends and visitors gather for the annual Baraboo River Rendezvous.

Baraboo River Rendezvous

Experience Wisconsin’s pre-1840s fur trade era rendezvous on Spirit Point along the Baraboo River near Mill Race Drive. From 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Friday though Sunday, participants will be dressed in buckskins, or other period clothing, carrying muskets and demonstrating for visitors the skills that allowed fur trappers and traders to make a living before extensive European settlement of the Great Lakes Region.

Baraboo River Rendezvous is a very family oriented event, making it ideal for a Labor Day weekend, so don’t leave anyone at home! The Baraboo River Rendezvous is a fur trade era event nestled in the trees along the Baraboo river. This a great rendezvous to kick back and relax or enjoy many of the activities and games we have going on.
