North House Folk School Winterer’s Gathering & Arctic Film Fest
Join us for the annual North House Folk School Winterer’s Gathering & Arctic Film Fest on November 16-19, 2023 at the North House Folk School in Grand Marais, Minnesota. Winterer’s Gathering & Arctic Film Festival is a multi-day educational event that celebrates the crafts, customs, landscape, history and stories of winter travel and traditional life ways in the north. Winter travel enthusiasts and northern culture admirers merge on the North House campus for four days of winter travel seminars, courses and workshops complemented by multiple evenings of inspiring thought-provoking international films about arctic life.
The Winterers—or Les Hivernants as the early North American Voyageurs referred to them– were brave, experienced individuals who signed on after the summer’s end to work at winter outposts scattered throughout the ‘interior’ of North America. In respect for the skills, traditions and spirit of this devoted group, the annual Winterer’s Gathering happens each year at the North House Folk School campus on the shore of Lake Superior.
