Winterer’s Gathering

Held at the North House Folk School in Grand Marais, the Winterer’s Gathering celebrates the crafts, customs, landscape, history and stories of winter travel and traditional ways of life in the North. The festival includes hands-on courses, a winter tent camp, a gear swap, dancing, a film festival, a chili feed, guest speakers and a poetry slam. This year’s featured speaker is Jon Turk. An avid wilderness traveler across the circumpolar North, Turk will teach two workshops and give a talk on “Communicating with Animals.” And in honor of the North House’s 20th anniversary, an exhibit of instructor craft, titled Begin Continue, will open at the Johnson Heritage Post on Friday. The reception will be held from 4-6 p.m. and the exhibit will remain open through Dec. 16.
