Grand Portage Powwow and Rendezvous Days

Friday, August 7th -Sunday, August 9th, 2015

The hustle and bustle of summer activity peaked with the North West Company Rendezvous held here at Grand Portage. This was the time when furs from wintering posts, which reached into Canada, were delivered down the historic Grand Portage.

  • The annual Rendezvous is still celebrated every year during the second weekend of August.
  • The event is held in conjunction with the Rendezvous Days Powwow, sponsored by the Grand Portage Band of Lake Superior Chippewa (Ojibwe).
  • The annual gathering is our biggest and most grand celebration of the year, a time when Grand Portage comes alive and reflects on its rich heritage.
  • Re-enactors from across the country and Canada gather to camp and challenge each other to games and skills from our historic past.
  • This is one event you do not want to miss. Music, dancing, craft demonstrations and hands-on workshops ensure an exciting weekend at Grand Portage National Monument!
