Native American Festival and Pow Wow

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

Dates: November 2 – 5, 2023

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.
