The Rabun Rendezvous

View a photo gallery of the Rabun Rendezvous

“The Rendezvous was unlike anything before or since, a gathering of uninhibited men down from the mountains. The event attracted perhaps a hundred mountain men, their Indian wives, and assorted visiting tribesmen. Amusements included gambling, drinking, storytelling – continuing day and night.”

The Mountain Men by George Laycock

The Rabun Rendezvous is the annual event of the year for the trout enthusiast in Georgia! It is typically held the Saturday following Martin Luther King Day, at our usual location at the Dillard House in Dillard, GA. Social time starts at 5 o’clock PM. Folks will gather to “pick the pig” and enjoy the rocking chairs on the porch of the Conference Center. There will be snack trays of cheeses, crackers, veggies with dips and fruits. Soft drinks and ice will be available. If you want something stronger, better bring it yourself. (BYOB) There will also be a fire inside to warm your buns. You can expect lots of great items for silent auction and raffle prizes. The Foxfire Boys, with their famous blue grass music, will be there. Then about 6:30 we will dine on fish, chicken and pork with all the side dishes and desserts that have made the Dillard House so famous. It is a serve yourself buffet, so you will not leave hungry. The cost is always reasonable, with a reduced rate for those under the age of 15.
