With the Birch Bark Bash on Friday night and Unplugged Performance on Saturday night, classic craft coursework, the Points North Online Auction, and the Folk Artisan Marketplace, it’s a true celebration of the educational mission of North House.

This year we’re very excited to welcome roots & blues musician and storyteller Rev. Robert Jones as our special guest on Saturday night.

Daily Sailing on Lake Superior

Daily Sailing on Lake Superior

Flagship of the Grand Marais Harbor, Hjørdis is named after the mythical Norse goddess of war. Take a trip aboard this 50’ traditionally-rigged schooner and experience Grand Marais as it was approached in the centuries before Highway 61 — from the water.

Our full sailing schedule through the end of August is now available! This year we’re also offering sunset sails with coffee and dessert served aboard the boat on select dates.
