Northwest Chapter Wooden Canoe Heritage Association Events
The Northwest Chapter's two main events are the annual Spring Rendezvous and the annual Fall Meet. These are occasions for wooden canoe owners and enthusiasts to gather at one location in the Pacific Northwest and experience a full weekend immersed (usually not literally!) in everything related to wooden canoes. While the size of the Spring Rendezvous has increased since beginning in 1995, the Fall Meet remains the largest and, for many, the most important function of the Chapter. For some pictures of past spring and fall meets see the Past Events page.  Also check out the current Newsletter (pdf format) detailing past events and canoe related articles.
