About Big Island Rendezvous and Festival
The Big Island Rendezvous is annually held the first full weekend in October at Bancroft Bay Park in Albert Lea, Minnesota. The event is a historical re-enactment of the fur trade period in the upper midwest, where you can experience the fur trade period in the voyageur encampment, Native American Tipi tours, the Scottish Clann Tartan, and New Ulm Battery. Big Island Rendezvous is one of the top festivals in the United States where you can purchase period wares, taste authentic cuisine, and experience the sights and sounds of history. Visitors can also observe and experience a number of early American crafts at the festival including woodworking, blacksmithing, candle making, and more. In 2022, the two-day Big Island Rendezvous & Festival will take place on Thursday, September 29 and Friday, September 30.
