Stone Mountain Park, Georgia’s most visited attraction, will host its 20th annual Native American Festival & Pow Wow beginning Nov. 7 until Nov. 10. 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. Parents and children can explore an encampment showing the lifestyle of local and regional historic Native American cultures where they can crawl inside of 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.
Date and times for the festival are as follows:
- Thursday, Nov. 7 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
