2019 Paiute Mountain Rendezvous
Join us at the 1st Annual Paiute Mountain Rendezvous (formerly Hart Canyon Rendezvous) on April 13-21, 2019 near Caliente, California. Experience the crack of muzzle-loading rifles echoing through the hills as hundreds of costumed reenactors mill about the camp in authentic pre-1840s Rocky Mountain mountain man (and woman) attire. This beautiful panorama is part of the Paiute Mountain Rendezvous, sponsored by the Paiute Mountain Buckskinners, a club dedicated to preserving early-19th-Century American history. The event will be held over nine days, and is open to the public.
Paiute Mountain Rendezvous
Anyone can stop by from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., but those wishing to stay overnight on the grounds must be registered as participants and outfitted in period attire. With various special events offered for adults and children, plus traders with period-era goods for shopping, this historic spectacle will be a memorable experience for the whole family.
At the Paiute Mountain Rendezvous, pre-1840s period mountain man traditions and customs are kept alive. Visitors will also find that hospitality, friendship and camaraderie extends throughout the camp to visitor and participant alike.
This is a 1740 to 1840 Rocky Mountain Fur Trade “period” encampment.
