Grand Portage Rendezvous Days and Powwow is an annual event which takes place the second full weekend in August. This special celebration commemorates the historic annual gathering of Ojibwe people, canoemen (voyageurs), clerks and partners of the North West Company on the western shore of Lake Superior. The powwow celebration, on the same weekend, is a short distance from the historic depot.

The 2014 Meadow Prescribed Burn was conducted on May 23rd. This prescribed burn was a cooperative effort utilizing resources and staff from Grand Portage Trust Lands forestry, Fond du Lac natural resources and Grand Portage National Monument.
