Do voyageurs still gather for a rendezvous? Where could my family go to see one? (Gabi, 14)
You can visit a rendezvous with costumed historical interpreters of Native Americans, voyageurs, traders and lots of fun activities to show how things were done. Here are some:
Forts Folle Avoine, near Danbury, Wisconsin 4th weekend in July
White Oak Fur Post, near Deer River, Minnesota 1st weekend in August
Grand Portage, in Grand Portage, Minnesota 2nd weekend in August
North West Company Fur Post, near Pine City, Minnesota 3rd weekend in September
What a great opportunity to see and feel what it was really like!
