Grand Portage National Monument Rendezvous Days 


Rendezvous Days, August 11-12, 2023

Travel back in time to 1797. The hustle and bustle of summer activity peaked with the North West Company Rendezvous held at Grand Portage. This was the time when furs from wintering posts, were delivered down the Grand Portage Trail. The annual Rendezvous is still celebrated here, the event is held in conjunction with the Rendezvous Days Pow-Wow, sponsored by the Grand Portage Band of Lake Superior Chippewa. The annual Rendezvous is our biggest celebration of the year, a time when Grand Portage comes alive and reflects on its rich heritage. An event for the whole family. Enjoy music, dancing, craft demonstrations, interpretive programs, and interactive workshops throughout the event.

The stockade, reconstructed buildings, and historic encampment are open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Heritage Center is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Admission to Rendezvous and the monument grounds is free. Donations to support future events and interpretive programs are appreciated. Thank you for your support!
