Mid-day Grand Entry Saturday and Sunday are particularly inspirational and colorful as U.S. flags are raised to military veterans from Grand Portage, and staff bearers lead dancers, dressed in traditional regalia, into the Pow Wow ring. Through the Pow Wow, all people have the chance to experience Native American culture in a wonderful way.

About Grand Portage Rendezvous Days
The annual Grand Rendezvous at Grand Portage, Minnesota, is still celebrated every year during the second weekend of August. The rendezvous is held in conjunction with the Grand Portage Rendezvous Days Celebration Pow Wow, sponsored by the Grand Portage Band of Lake Superior Chippewa (Ojibwe). The annual gathering is their biggest of the year, a time when Grand Portage comes alive and reflects on its rich heritage. Reenactors from across the country and Canada gather to camp and challenge each other to games and skills from our historic past, next door to the pow wow at the Grand Portage Historic Rendezvous Encampment.
