Santa Fe Trail Encampment

10/10/2020 to 10/11/2020 | Arrow Rock State Historic Site | Arrow Rock, MO

Arrow Rock is not holding its annual Fall Festival, due to COVID-19 concerns. However, there will be a small two-day living history encampment of site volunteers on the west lawn of the J. Huston Tavern. The event will feature a wagon, some period-style tents and trade goods of the type conveyed to Santa Fe from Arrow Rock and the Boonslick Country in the 1830s. The volunteers will demonstrate and explain the usage of some of the equipment and the types of conditions encountered on the Santa Fe Trail between Missouri and New Mexico.

Arrow Rock merchants will be open, and several craftspeople will be demonstrating on the Main Street boardwalk of town. The locations and small scale of the event will easily permit social distancing. Visitors are asked to wear face masks when visiting the encampment and community businesses.
