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 traditional powwow celebration, on the same weekend, is a short walk from the historic depot.
