Memorial Day in Grand Marais

May 24-27, 2013

If you do it right, a three-day weekend
can last all summer.

2013 Schedule

Bring on summer with a trip to Grand Marais. Everyone enjoys the harbor – the nearby shopping, dining and just plain relaxing. World’s Best Donuts, Angry Trout Café, Sydney’s Frozen Custard and the rest of our 22 eateries are ready to please your palate indoors, or send you out on your custom picnic. 24 galleries and shops welcome you to select just the right work of art, piece of clothing, book, North Shore memento – or kites for sailing by the harbor! Bring your suits for the indoor municipal pool, your tennis rackets, skateboards and bikes (or rent those here). We’ll fill your weekend in as many ways as you’d like!
