"Trade, Barter, Buy"
Open to the public and Traders this event is a "once a year" opportunity for you to get great deals on merchandise that the Traders want to clear out of their inventory, reunite with fellow Rendezvous traders, and visit with the public.
You never know if you will find just the item you are looking for, not to mention the fun and camaraderie of a Traders camp, indoors, in the middle of February.
NEW EVENT DURING THE TRADE FAIR! On Saturday, February 16th there will be Primitive Biathlon held on the grounds of Forts Folle Avoine Historical Park. More information can be found on the Primitive Biathlon Webpage.
