About the Rendezvous

The Northwoods Rendezvous & Wild Rice Festival is dedicated to bringing many aspects of Wisconsin’s pre-statehood history back to life.

Native American traditional games will be showcased, as well as traditional hunting, trapping and every-day life methods that are representative of the time period.

Step back in time with us and experience reenactments of the early 1800s, when Native Americans and the early settlers shared the bounty of the landscape.

2020 Event Postponed

The Mole Lake Casino and Lodge and the Northwoods Rendezvous & Wild Rice Festival planning committee have announced that they are postponing the 2020 event.

"The safety of our guests, event attendees and the reenactors is an utmost concern, and we felt it was better to postpone this year," said Jake Godin, Director of Marketing for the Casino.

The 2021 event date has not been set yet, and will be posted as soon as the information is available.

For future updates, please follow our Facebook page.  We will also post announcements here.
