Modern day rendezvous are as varied as the folks who put them on. Some are shooting matches in traditional garb. Others go much further with activities for the whole family, games, trade shows, contests of skill and luck with camping and dress of the period from 1800 to 1840. You don’t need a full set of buckskins to fit in, a calico shirt and canvas pants work just fine for the men with traditional prairie dresses for the women.
