Blast into the past with mountain men, buffalo

CANTON The public is invited to attend the Maxwell Wildlife Refuge Prairie Rendezvous on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 3-4 . This event is a living history experience complete with mountain men, Indians, cowboys, and buffalo.

The event will be a gathering of mountain men, Native American re-enactors, and other demonstrators of life in Kansas during the early 1800s. Mountain men primitive camps, early-day Kansas demonstrations, Indian folklore, flint knappers, bird watching, and arts and crafts will be featured.

On Saturday, bluegrass music will be performed at 10 a.m. by the Black Kettle Band and by the Walnut River String Band at 12:30 p.m. Concessions will include buffalo burgers and much more.
Gate admission is only $1 per day, and prairie tours of the refuge in the Friends of Maxwell tram will be conducted every hour $5 for adults and $4 for students K-12. Kids under four can ride free. These tours offer a unique opportunity to view buffalo, and possibly elk, in a native Kansas prairie.

One of the finest outdoor educational events of the year, the Maxwell Prairie Rendezvous drew 1,600 visitors last year, including 500 school children. Those who plan to attend the event should phone (620) 628-4455 or visit for more information.
