Grand Marais is home to a variety of local events.


Unplugged Music Festival, The Northern Harvest

Fourth weekend in September “Wow!” is a common reaction to first-time attendees of the Unplugged concert. Wow, what incredible musicians. Wow, what an amazing, intimate concert. Wow, can you believe those big name performers gave a show in Grand Marais, in a tent. We agree, “wow” sums it up pretty well.

Last night and early this morning the northern lights put on a nice little display. If you have plans for leaf peeping on the North Shore this weekend, keep your eyes on the night sky. Chances are good for more aurora activity. 10/1/2015 thomasjspenceimages.smugmug.com/

Oh Oberg! ... See MoreSee Less

Sawtooth Mountains and distant Grand Marais, MN viewed from Oberg Mountain this evening. Lots of green and yellow on the lake side but the maples are looking great off to my left. The Oberg hike is almost prime for fall color viewing. I think I did this hike on September 26th last year and felt I was a day or two late for peak color. Things are running late this year. Fantastic sunset hike tonight. 9/30/2015 thomasjspenceimages.smugmug.com/
