Native American Festival and Pow Wow

October 31 – November 3, 2024

Thursday & Friday | 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM
Saturday & Sunday | 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM

Bring your family to experience the energy and color of the largest Native American gathering in Georgia. Located in Historic Square, the four-day Native American Festival and Pow-Wow was named a Top 20 Event by the Southeast Tourism Society.

This event showcases Native American culture through dance, music, authentic craft demonstrations, cooking traditions, storytelling, wildlife presentations and more.

  • Experience the central role of dance in native culture as Native Americans from across the U.S. and Central America compete in inter-tribal dance and drum competitions.
  • Learn about primitive skills such as flint-knapping, bow making, fire starting, open fire cooking, and pottery. Crawl inside a tipi and other traditional native dwellings. Parents and children can participate in interactive experiences such as an encampment showing the lifestyle of local and regional historic Native American cultures.
  • Find that one-of-a-kind holiday gift in the artists’ marketplace, where world-renowned Native and Native-inspired artists and crafters demonstrate their skills and offer hand-crafted items for sale.
  • Wildlife presentations by the American Eagle Foundation. The American Eagle Foundation, permitted through USFWS, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the conservation and protection of the bald eagle and other birds of prey through public education.
