Rendezvous Days & Celebration Pow-Wow–Cancelled

It is with regret that Grand Portage National Monument informs you that the Rendezvous Days Celebration is cancelled in 2021. We work closely with our community in Grand Portage, especially when it comes to public health and safety. The Grand Portage Tribal Council and Pow Wow committee has decided to cancel the 2021 Rendezvous Days Pow Wow and related community events due to the ongoing pandemic. Representatives from the Tribal Council state: “This decision was not made lightly but we are continuing to keep the safety and well-being of the community and our guests in mind.” Grand Portage National Monument respects this effort towards community safety and will work with our Tribal Partners in cancelling this year’s event.

We hope to return to our Rendezvous Celebration in 2022.



The annual Rendezvous is celebrated every year during the second weekend of August. The event is held in conjunction with the Rendezvous Days Pow Wow, sponsored by the Grand Portage Band of Lake Superior Chippewa (Ojibwe). The annual gathering is the community’s biggest and most grand celebration of the year, a time when Grand Portage comes alive and reflects on its rich heritage.

Reenactors from across the country and Canada to gather, camp and challenge each other to games and skills from our historic past.

Visitors can expect a weekend packed with cultural events from the 1800s to 1900s, including: an authentic Native American Pow Wow, with Stonebridge singers and drumming, as well as chances to try blacksmithing, arts and crafts, Native American cuisine, and recreational activities.

Admission: No admission charge
Age Restriction: None
