Mole Lake, Wisconsin

About the Rendezvous

The Northwoods Rendezvous & Wild Rice Festival is a new event, 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.
