Event Schedule

Sadly we have CANCELLED the 2020 Rifle Rendezvous Festival.  We will miss all of you!  But in an effort to help FLATTEN THE CURVE and promote social distancing while we all try to survive COVID19 we decided it would be better to cancel our event than have anyone ill.  We will be planning next years event and will need your ideas, your help and support!  Stay Safe!
