Fort Rowdy Gathering: From the hovering lights of campfires, frontier enthusiasts gather in groups playing guitars, drums, and washboard, much like small trading villages once participated in the 1800s. The weekend begins with an old-fashioned hometown parade on Saturday, but the highlight of this festival is the mountain man encampment located next to the Stillwater River. The event and parking are free to the public.
