We would like to invite you to participate in the 21th annual Fort Rowdy Gathering Encampment on October 5th & 6th, 2013. Come enjoy the splendid wooded banks of the Stillwater River and our 209 ft. long portable footbridge that connects the pre-1840’s encampment to the Covington Community.
Encampment activities include; hawk & knife, spear throw, bow shoot, lizard pull, flint & steel, cooking contest, and rolling pin & skillet toss along with many games and contests for the children. Prizes will be awarded at camp meetings. A Sunday morning worship service will be held at the encampment stage. As always, entertainment will abound. The old time camp favorite, The Ramblin’ Rovers, will be playing throughout the weekend.
The annual auction will be held Saturday on the camp stage. All donations are greatly appreciated. Funds raised from the auction go directly to the support of the Gathering, so please donate new or used items, modern or primitive. You never know how much fun you can have bidding on that one of a kind item or getting rid of the dust covered one in your corner until you try, so come and have some fun!
Vendors may set up on Wednesday October 2nd. Vendor areas will be marked accordingly. Pre-registered Campers may set up Thursday October 3rd. All others may set-up Friday October 4th. Tear down must be completed no later than Wednesday October 9th, 2013. Due to the nature of our Encampment and the Festival hours, Camp teardown is not permitted before 6 pm on Sunday.
