Lancaster Restoration Memorial Day Rendezvous
Being the spring rendezvous, the rendezvous camp area of the South Platte Valley Historic Park is greening up. Big leafy cottonwood trees provide shade and the fresh grassy areas provide a comfortable place to set up camp. Nearby, snowmelt is running down the Platte River. Non re-enactor visitors are welcome during the day, but at the end of the day only campers in pre-1840 clothing are allowed in the rendezvous area. There is a separate area for “Tin Teepees” and modern camps setups for those not in period attire.
Early set-up is on the Saturday and Sunday prior the Memorial Day weekend and official dates of the Lancaster Restoration Memorial Day Rendezvous. This allows campers and traders to establish their camp the weekend before the rendezvous. Camps must be broken down the last day of the rendezvous.
