Annual Mountain Man Weekend Gathering

What is a Mountain Man? "A 'Mountain Man' is the present day term for an 1800's 'Buckskinner' ", says Allan Hughes of Traders Village. "Our Mountain Man Gathering gives youth and adults alike the opportunity to experience and enjoy a valuable part of Americana, how our ancestors survived in the American frontier."

If you have camped out, been a member of the Boy or Girl Scouts, or have any interest in American history, you will be intrigued by the pre-1840s costumes that will be showcased at Traders Village.

This special weekend will begin each day at 10:00 a.m.. Through song, storytelling and historical reenactment of an era unfamiliar to us all, Mountain Man Gathering will provide a window to the past with authenticity as the key. Mountain Man demonstrations will include: beading, tomahawk and knife throwing, firestarting, blacksmithing, soapmaking and Native American Roach Making. Traders and sellers will include Wooden Hawk Trading Co., Watchful Eagle Trading Post, J. T.'s Flaming Rose Trading Co., Just Jeannie's, Creative Blacksmithing, Tree's Stumps & Logs, and Sleeping Bear Forge.

Traders Village is located at 2602 Mayfield Road in Grand Prairie, five miles south of Six Flags Over Texas, just off State Highway 360 near I-20. Admission is free and parking is only $3 per car. For more information, call 972-647-2331.
