AT FRONTIER DAYS – FORT DODGE 2012
Step into the 1800’s and experience of life of the Buckskinner’s at the 2012 Frontier Days in Fort Dodge, Iowa. The encampment is complete with ”Traders Row” which fires the imagination of what it must have been like in that era. Entertainment, demonstrations, and seminars on a variety of “life as it was” skills which will give young and old a deeper appreciation of the challenges and dangers that were faced and overcome. Tomahawk and knife demonstrations, mountain-man storytelling, and musicians are all part of this annual Buckskinner tradition at Frontier Days.
All of the Buckskinner’s dress in period costumes and play the part to give a real feel to the whole encampment, and as you explore your way through Traders Row, you plenty of opportunity to bring home that special souvenir.
If you are interested in demonstrating your craft and in trading you may contact Brad (Big Horn) Heart at 515-368-3003 to be part of this long standing tradition.
