Indigenous Cultures Institute invites you to apply for a vendor’s booth at its 2016 Sacred Springs Powwow. We are limiting the spaces to 40 (which includes food booths) plus 10 nonprofit booths.
This year we're continuing the Native Culture Tent located in the middle of the circle of vendors on the asphalt road turn-around area. Under a large tent, throughout the day, we'll have flute players, storytellers, dancers, children singing exhibitions, and much more. These presentations will be announced frequently at the Arena Tent and featured in new signage that points to the "Native Culture Tent".
SPECIAL THIS YEAR: This year we will have the entire powwow including vendors on the golf course area adjacent to the grounds where we were last year. There is lots more room and all the vendors will be located around the Arena Tent.
