The Fort Washita Fur Trade Rendezvous is to be held April 2-6, 2014. This is a living history event reminiscent of a fur trade rendezvous that was the center of commerce on the early western frontier. The event will consist of numerous instructive programs in customs, survival skills, and lifestyles of the period, as well as colorful traders, trappers, and craftsmen selling their wares. School days are scheduled for Thursday, April 3, and Friday, April 4, 2014. Participants can expect to see trappers representing the far northwest mountain areas to the desert southwest, as well as traders with French and Spanish influence. Visitors will experience the sights, sounds, and smells of history.
Food vendors will be on site and cameras are permitted. There is no charge for school buses. There is a $5 per car fee, with all proceeds going toward preservation projects at Fort Washita.
