When the fur traders packed their canoes with precious furs and began the arduous journey north after the long cold winter at Forts Folle Avoine, their destination was Grand Portage. There, for a few weeks before preparing for the return trip, they could relax as they took part in the much anticipated Rendezvous celebration.
Each July, here at Forts Folle Avoine Fur Trade Rendezvous, dozens of fur trade camps fill Sayer's Field and Trader's Row. Represented is a variety of unique characters, all gathering together after a rigorous winter of trapping. As was true two hundred years ago, goods are "traded", stories told, and fun times enjoyed by rendezvous campers, traders, and visitors.  
Rendezvous includes demonstrations of period skills including black powder shooting, archery and tomahawk throwing. Tasty food prepared in the fur-trade era manner is a treat. Goods offered by the traders include period clothing, furnishings, camp gear, trade silver, animal skins, jewelry and a fascinating variety of other utilitarian and decorative items.
