Grand Marais Fireworks Paul Sundberg

4th of July

The 4th of July–a time for swimming in the lake, rock skipping, shopping, agate hunting, donuts, long hikes, canoe trips, fudge, fireworks, and time with your family. It’s the true kick-off for summer here in the north woods and we’d love to have you join us! Take the weekend (or the whole week) to get away from the bustle of the city and enjoy what summer on the shore has to offer. Plan an excursion into the BWCA then come back to civilization in time to enjoy one of the three, yes three, fireworks displays our communities put on every year! Many who visit our neck of the woods end up coming back time and time again because they just cannot fit all of the fun to be had in to only one visit. Don’t wait to start planning your trip here, explore lodging options now!

As of May 15, 2020 the Firework shows are still scheduled, keep checking back for updates!

Sadly the things that make this a true small town 4th of July celebration in Tofte cannot happen this year since this celebration is all about bringing people together.  In 2020 there will be NO Tofte Trek 10k Trail Run,  parade, beer garden, bingo, food vendors, craft fair, spaghetti dinner at Zoar or live music.

TBD–Fireworks in Tofte Park | Check back for updates on if a fireworks display will occur in 2020.
