MOUNTAIN MAN RENDEZVOUS AND ATLATL COMPETITION

Date: Saturday, May 19, 2018

Time: 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM

Location: Fremont Indian State Park and Museum Visitor Center

Directions: Fremont Indian State Park is west of Richfield, Utah, off I-70, 17 miles east of I-15 junction.  Take either exit 17 or exit 23 and follow the signs to the Visitor Center. To carpool, meet at 7:30 AM at the Earthfest Information Table, Kane County Office of Tourism, 78 South 100 East, Kanab.

Cost: Normal day use fee of $8.00 per vehicle applies.

Description: One thousand years ago, the valleys along what is now Interstate 70 near Sevier, Utah were home to the largest community of Fremont Indians ever discovered. Their rock art and structures are still visible in the canyons of Fremont Indian State Park. A film, artifacts, hands-on activities, rock art tours, and exhibits offer insights into their lives. The park also offers camping and access to the Paiute ATV Trail.

Experience a step back in time in the historic reenactment of the fur trading era. See primitive demonstrations, and take part in activities such as black powder rifle and pistol shoots, tomahawk and knife throw, and the archery shoot. Children can enjoy the shooting of candy cannons. From 10 AM to 2 PM, try your hunting skill by throwing an atlatl at 3D animal targets along our course. Throw spears at the accuracy target to see how close you can come to hitting a bull’s eye. Compete against family and friends to see who would have been the best at taking down a mastodon!
