Grand Rendezvous coming to Granby Aug. 27-28
July 27, 2011
A new festival is coming to Granby. Aug. 27-28 is the debut of The Grand Rendezvous.
History will come alive in Kaibab Park as the event will feature a lumberjack show and competition as well as a mountain man rendezvous and historic skits about Grand County.
There will also be a chili cook-off and a pie baking contest.
The lumberjack show will include events such as an ax throw, men’s and women’s single cross cut, an incline pole, and a stock saw competition. All lumberjacks, amateur and pro, are welcome to enter the competition.
The mountain man rendezvous will occur at the same time with demonstrations and stories about the rendezvous of old. There will be time to see how a teepee is erected and a hide is cleaned and sewn. Story tellers will share tales about Native American and mountain man ways.
In addition, the Grand County Characters will perform skits about historic characters including Granby Hillyer, David Moffat and others.
Then head to the chili cook-off and help judge the best chili in Grand County, or perhaps you would prefer to judge the best pie.
