North Country Trail Association

Annual Celebration

Join the annual North Country Trail community gathering to learn new skills, become inspired, and of course, hike!

The North Country Trail Association works with one or a few local Chapters to host Celebration in a different location each year. This event is a multiple-day event that offers opportunities to explore the North Country National Scenic Trail in unique locations. It allows you to network with trail lovers from North Dakota to Vermont and beyond, offers skills workshops and volunteer training, and brings you exciting evening presentations. Join us as we celebrate everything that makes our Trail community special.


We have reinvisioned 2020’s event to bring our volunteer awards ceremonies, workshops and presentations, and even our Founder’s Circle reception to an online format.

Celebration is a pillar of the Association’s work and absolutely nothing beats hiking together on the Trail, spending time around a campfire, or sharing meals and stories.

While the event will look different, it still has the opportunity to bring us closer together, celebrate our work and keep us excited for the future.  Although we may not be together in person this year, this format will allow us to share these events with more people than ever before.


We hope to see you there. Thank you for your understanding and support.
