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.
