Rendezvous Days return Aug. 19 to 21

Bring the whole family and step back in American history Aug. 19 to 21 with the Central Whidbey Sportmen’s Association and buck skinners from far and wide for the annual Rendezvous Days depicting the life and times of pre-1840s America.

Mountain men, buck skinners and fur trappers will trek the Coupeville plains and meet at the Central Whidbey Sportmen’s Association clubhouse and shooting range located 2.5 miles south of Coupeville on Safari Lane off Highway 20 across from Morris Road and just north of the Outlaying Field.

Traders' tents will be open selling beads and leather goods, early American cooking utensils, leather and cloth clothing, blacksmithing items, and black-powder guns and supplies.

There will be black-powder shooting events, primitive archery, tomahawk and knife throwing, and children’s games.

The event is free and open to the public on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 19 and 20, from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Sunday, Aug. 21, from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.
