Friends of Fort Washita
Fort Washita Historic Site and the Friends of Fort Washita host the annual Fur Trade Rendezvous at Fort Washita each year. This event is reminiscent of a fur trade rendezvous that was the center of commerce on the early western frontier. Visitors can expect to see trappers representing the far northwest mountain areas to the desert southwest, as well as traders with French and Spanish influence. The rendezvous will include instructive programs in customs, survival skills and lifestyles of the period.
