The Native American Festival & Pow Wow begins Nov. 2 and runs through Nov. 5. With multiple tribes represented, the festival is considered the largest gathering of its kind in Georgia and a Top 20 Event by the Southeast Tourism Society.
Held at the park’s Historic Square, visitors will experience the southeast’s premier Native American cultural festival through dance, music, interactive educational displays, authentic craft demonstrations, cooking traditions, storytelling, wildlife presentations, and more.
The event showcases cultural and educational activities for families to experience. Discover the central role of dance in native culture as Native Americans from across the U.S. and Central America compete in intertribal dance and drum competitions. Learn about primitive skills such as flint-knapping, bow-making, fire-starting, open-fire cooking, and pottery. Guests can explore an encampment showing the lifestyle of local and regional historic Native American cultures where they can crawl inside tipis and other traditional native dwellings.
The four-day festival also includes an artists’ marketplace where shoppers will find one-of-a-kind gift items. World-renowned Native and Native-inspired artists and crafters demonstrate their skills and offer hand-crafted items for sale.
Dates and times for the festival are as follows:
Thursday and Friday, Nov. 2 & 3 from 9 AM to 3 PM
Saturday, Nov. 4 from 10:30 AM to 5 PM
Sunday, Nov. 5 from 10:30 AM to 5 PM
