We are always looking for interesting demonstrations and characters to add to our event! Demonstrators need to be approved by the Booshway prior to the event and must agree to actively demonstrate the entirety of Friday's Demonstration Day. In return, our demonstrators will not be charged a camp fee.
Only pre-1865 primitive camps are allowed inside the Rendezvous camp. Participants (re-enactors) must wear attire and accoutrements of the time period. There are some limited modern camping spots for our registered demonstrators just outside the Rendezvous camp area. There is NO camping offered to the general public.
Info for Re-Enactors:
Set up is allowed beginning Wednesday evening. Friday is Demonstration Day from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. During Friday’s Demonstration Day there are NO vehicles allowed inside camp and set up can resume at 3:30 p.m. All vehicles are prohibited from camp beginning Friday evening.
Friday and Saturday are open to the public. According to past events, we can expect around 700+ attendees (primarily youth and families) on Friday's Demonstration Day and another 200+ on Saturday. We are not open to the public on Sunday but expect our camp to remain period correct until camp meeting. Our camp meeting takes place at 2:00 where we award prizes for competitions and announce raffle winners. Vehicles are allowed back in camp at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday for tear down.
Camp fee is $25. If you participate as a demonstrator on Friday, your camp fee is waived. Wood, water, and hooters are provided. A convenience store is located 2 miles away.
Re-enactors and demonstrators are allowed to bring pets if they are well behaved, up to date on shots, and LEASHED at all times. We cannot control cannon-fire, gunfire, and crowds of children and it is your responsibility to insure your pet meets these guidelines and does not disturb others or pose any threats to the public.
