Forts Folle Avoine events in Wisconsin

Each July, at Forts Folle Avoine Fur Trade Rendezvous, dozens of fur trade camps fill Sayer's Field and Trader's Row. As was true two hundred years ago, goods are "traded", stories told, and fun times enjoyed by rendezvous campers, traders, and visitors. Rendezvous includes demonstrations of period skills including black powder shooting, archery and tomahawk throwing. Tasty food prepared in the fur-trade era manner is a treat. Goods offered by the traders include period clothing, furnishings, camp gear, trade silver, animal skins, jewelry and a fascinating variety of other utilitarian and decorative items.
