Good things are best shared

We’re proud to call Northern Minnesota home, to call you our neighbor, and to welcome visitors who want to embrace this great place along with us. It’s our mission to make Meet Up North our hub for events and activities so we can enjoy all the goodness the Northwoods has to offer. From epic doglsedding adventures to cozy card games by the fire, we hope this collection inspires you to explore the region.

Good things are best shared, so let’s get out there together.



Our Region

We’re based in the Northwoods of Minnesota on the southern edge of the famous Iron Range. We feature events and activities within approximately a 30 miles radius of Grand Rapids, including Deer River, Cohasset, Bovey, Coleraine, Remer & Hill City.

Hi There,

I’m Emily, the founder of MeetUpNorth. I’m a believer in small towns and a fan of spontaneous get-togethers. I cherish my childhood memories of unannounced drop-ins, town picnics, and neighborhood block parties. Before making Grand Rapids my home sweet home, I lived in cities big and small around the world and found that what really makes a place thrive is the people. That’s you and me! This place is rich with creative, hard-working and nice people, and I don’t mean Minnesota Nice, I’m talking the real, genuine kind of nice. MeetUpNorth is a way for me to shout it from the rooftops that this a great place to be and there are great things happening. I’ll see you out there!

The More the Merrier

Do you love your small town but need a better way to promote all the good stuff that’s happening? We partner with local advocates to create event platforms for communities like yours. If you’re interested in learning more, let’s talk.
