Fall Gathering

The annual NAVC Fall Gathering is a conference where like-minded individuals passionate about the history of the Great Lakes fur trade gather.  Through workshops, speakers, demonstrations, and exhibits we deepen our knowledge of this fascinating era. Join us for great food, fun conversation, and learn about our history!
