2019 Como Mountain Man Rendezvous
Experience a pre-1840s style gathering at the 35th Annual Como Mountain Man Rendezvous on August 10-17, 2019 in Como, Colorado. As a pre-1840s fur trade rendezvous re-enactment, the Como Mountain Man Rendezvous strives in all aspects of this event to be true to that era in the Rocky Mountains. The Como Mountain Man Rendezvous is held about 6 miles south of the town of Como, Colorado.
Como Mountain Man Rendezvous
Como is located in South Park, an intermontane grassland basin. South Park is approximately 950 square miles of rolling hills and meadows at approximately 10,000 feet altitude. This region was a favorite trapping and wintering spot during the fur trade era. The site has beautiful with views of the mountains both South and West. We hope we are lucky enough to continue to use this site for years to come. This will be the 32nd Como Rendezvous. They have been held in the South Park region of Colorado all previous years.
Our Como Mountain Man Rendezvous site is owned by the JBGardneRanch and is donated to us for this event by Amanda Woodbury. Without Amanda Woodbury and the JBGardneRanch our rendezvous would not be possible. We owe a great debt of appreciation to Amanda and the JBGardneRanch.
This year camp fees will be by donation only. One jar will be for the costs of the event and the other jar (Critters “Pay it forward” fund) is to give directly back to the owner to show our gratitude for letting us use this site. Donations are also accepted for prizes and for the auction at the end of the week. All of the proceeds go to fund next years Como Mountain Man Rendezvous.
