Pow-Wow, The Traditional Gathering and Grand Portage National Monument Rendezvous Days

Visitors and tribal members alike are invited to watch and participate in ceremonial pow-wow dances. Vendors offer a wide selection of arts, crafts and Native American food. The Grand Portage Pow-Wow is an alcohol free event. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the Grand Portage Band and its heritage. Music, dancing, craft demonstrations, and hands-on workshops ensure an exciting weekend at the Grand Portage National Monument Rendezvous Program.

  • Daily Schedules of presentations, workshops and contests
  • The Stockade, reconstructed buildings and historic encampment are open to the public from 9 am – 5 pm.
  • The Heritage Center is open 8:30 am to 6:00 pm.
  • Rendezvous re-enactors gather to camp and challenge each other. Please feel free to interact with historic participants. They are here to help you understand and enjoy this Rendezvous re-enactment and provide you with an opportunity to learn more about Grand Portage and its relationship with the fur trade.
    Participants are eager to answer your questions, to explain activities going on in their camps, and to show you materials and equipment they have on display.

Admission to Rendezvous and the National Monument grounds is free. Donations to support future events and interpretive programs are appreciated.
