Pinedale & The Green River Rendezvous
The Green River Rendezvous is just around the corner. If you are excited about it as we are, you may be wondering what kind of events are scheduled for this year. We’ll post links as we learn more but be sure to be in Pinedale on the dates below:
Thursday July 12th through Sunday July 15th.
We don’t have a schedule to post yet, but judging from previous years, you can expect the following:
Trader’s Row – Open Air Market – usually open all 4 days
A market with a mountain man flair. Find knives, beadwork, pelts, period clothing, and other fun shopping. Even better, the shopping is just a couple of blocks from the Sundance Motel (or maybe that isn’t so great – for the pocketbook :))
Museum of the Mountain Man (MUM) Presentations – All 4 days
If you’ve never been to these presentations, you’re in for a treat. The exhibits and presentations are geared toward history buffs but are interesting for all groups and ages.
If you get a chance to listen to Michael Terry, take advantage of it. I always have a hard time tearing myself away from his talks. He’s very interesting and his command of the Indian history is legendary.
The Sundance Motel is a short walk from the MUM at the base of the hill.
Green River Rendezvous Parade – Saturday
This start off the celebration. It proceeds down the main street in Pinedale (Pine Street) right past the Sundance Motel. The parade features normal floats but also has people dressed as Indians, Trappers, and Cowboys. Nothing puts you in the Rendezvous spirit faster than being among people dressed in the garb of the era.
Rendezvous Rodeos – Each Evening
Don’t go to bed early – you’ll be missing one of the best treats in Wyoming. Take in the outdoor evening rodeo and watch the best of the local rodeo talent. You’ll be amazed at the skills from these performers as they showcase their “day job” talents.
Green River Rendezvous Pagent – Sunday
The culmination of the entire Rendezvous is the re-enactment of the early Rendezvous. Locals have been re-living the Rendezvous since 1936 so there is a lot of history and a lot of pride put into this. You’ll feel a part of the first get-togethers – now this is REAL 3D. You’re outside enjoying the weather and soaking it all in…
As we get more information, we’ll post it on our website. We invite you to stay at the Sundance Motel in downtown Pinedale Wyoming to celebrate the Green River Rendezvous with us.
