Rate This Event

 

Experience fur trade era life at the 29th Annual Sierra Muzzle Loaders Spring Rendezvous on May 17-19, 2019 at the Sierra Muzzle Loaders Club Site in Forbestown, California. We are a family-oriented black powder club with activities for kids and adults. Our love of history and the mountain man era is what brings the Sierra Muzzleloaders together. We share a passion for a true living history experience. For our Open Rendezvous there are three areas designated for camping: Primitive area (all visible equipment pre-1840), Open Camping area (a mix of primitive and modern camping equipment) and Tin Tipi (RVs and trailers, no hook-ups). There is also an area set aside for Traders’ Row.

Sierra Muzzle Loaders Spring Rendezvous

You’ll find several ranges to test your skills including hawk and knife, archery, rifle, pistol, trade gun, trade pistol, a number of specialty shoots and a cannon and mortar shoot. Primitive dress is encouraged but not required, except for those choosing to camp in our primitive camping area.

Friday Night Pot Luck: $5 per person, plus bring a small dish to share. We will serve until our we are out. First come first serve.

All Visitors are Welcome at No Charge!
To stay in the spirit of the Sierra Muzzle Loaders Spring Rendezvous, anyone visiting after dusk is asked to be in period dress. A “Rendezvous Clothes Closet” is available for visitors who wish to borrow period clothing.
