Grand Portage Rendezvous Days and Powwow is an annual event which takes place the second full weekend in August. This special celebration recreates 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 now takes place on the same weekend a short distance from the historic depot.
