I didn’t see any information about fees for just entering the event. I’m just a visitor and want to see the dancing and support the event. Is it open to the public? Please advise, thanks!

I am wanting to bring my 6 little kids and wondering what day and which event is best to attend as some have a short attention plan.

Children are welcome to Pow Wows! This is a great place for them to see Native American culture alive!

I would recommend you take them to a Pow Wow on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. Try to time your visit so that you can see the Grand Entry. That is when all the dancers come in to the dance arena. That will definitely capture their attention.

Is there a wheel chair or scooter we can rent at event?
