A Bar A Ranch Fall Rendezvous
September 10-18, 2019!
Guest artists, live music, cattle drives, fall fishing–all of our favorite adventures will be happening, along with a special focus on Western land conservation. This theme will be supported by various special guests with unique perspectives on natural resources conservation, the role of agriculture and private conservation, intersections with art and photography, and more!
We always look forward September at the A Bar A, with its crisp air, brilliant blue skies, and golden aspen groves. This year, we’re planning a wonderful series of special activities during what we’re now calling our “Fall Rendezvous”. This eight-day event will incorporate our beloved “Reunion Week” along with the newer “Grand Slam” event that we inaugurated last year.
We’re grateful for the opportunity to share this time and learn together in such a wonderful setting.
Stay tuned for more information about our 2019 guest artists and special presenters!
