Take a step back in history nearly two centuries and walk upon the site where history was made, where the man became a legend, as we celebrate Hugh Glass Rendezvous in the banks of the Grand River and Shadehill Reservoir, at Hugh Glass Park.

The event will include the primitive mountain man rendezvous camp, unique black powder shoots, hawk throws and primitive archery, a prairie church service and extraordinary bicentennial youth day. Experience Lemmon’s local history first-hand through special presentations, speakers, and musical entertainment.

Join us as we remember the amazing story of Hugh Glass and his trek back to civilization 200 years later. With the wealth of local history in Western South Dakota and the release of Hollywood’s take on Glass with Alejandro Iñárritu’s critically acclaimed The Revenant starring Leonardo DiCaprio, there’s no better time to take a trip into the past.

The Hugh Glass Rendezvous’ goal is to recognize those early frontiersman that contributed to the rich history in NW SD; especially the life and tragedy which Hugh Glass faced after being attacked by a grizzly bear.
