2020 Fort Foster Rendezvous
Join us for the 24th Annual Fort Foster Rendezvous on February 8-9, 2020 at Fort Foster State Historic Site in Thonotosassa, Florida. The Fort Foster Rendezvous is a living history reenactment featuring military, Seminole, and civilian reenactors, sutlers, traders, and craft demonstrations. The annual Fort Foster Rendezvous features military demonstrations and a small reenactment that is loosely based on the skirmish and varies from year to year. This Fort Foster Rendezvous weekend will offer ongoing daily live firing demonstrations and a skirmish between the Seminoles and US military after 1:00 pm both Saturday and Sunday.
