on the North Shore of Lake Superior

We absolutely love it here, and couldn't imagine living anywhere else. Joy & Co. is so proud to call Grand Marais, Minnesota — a small, art-focused community of just over 1,000 people — home. 

Explore the oldest art colony in Minnesota. Indulge at our unique shops and restaurants. Adventure in the natural beauty that surrounds our harbor village. Check out Visit Cook County to learn about all we have to offer.

Here's some of favorite local happenings:

Fisherman's Picnic

This wildly-popular event has been taking place in Grand Marais for about 90 years — and there's far more to enjoy than just a shore lunch. Each summer, our small town fills up with visitors seeking "crazy day" sales, craft shows, daily contests, prizes, live music, kids activities and so much more. Check out the next dates here.
