Partners for Pinnacle news release regarding the cancellation of Rendezvous. While we are deeply saddened by the choice we had to make the fact remains that the popularity of the event and therefore the amount of manpower necessary to run it was becoming overwhelming. There were simply not enough people volunteering to help to be able to continue the quality event expected by park patrons. We will continue to do what we can to support the Park and its mission and would encourage others to join us.
Introduced in 1825, by the Rocky Mountain Fur Company, Rendezvous takes its name from their annual late summer gatherings that ended in 1840. The wildnerness rendezvous provided a place for Mountain Men and Native Americans to gather and stock up on supplies, sing and dance before the fall of winter.
A celebration of our heritage...
