Indigenous Cultures Institute invites you to apply for a vendor’s booth at its 2014 Sacred Springs Powwow.  We are limiting the spaces to 40 (which includes food booths) plus 10 nonprofit booths. This year we’re moving all the vendors to the asphalt road and turn-around area - no more tall grass problems.

PLEASE NOTE: You must bring weights to anchor your tents against the wind. We CANNOT make holes in the asphalt.

We’re moving the powwow dance arena to the grassy area next to the glass bottom boat ticket office, in front of the old hotel building.  This year we are moving: the 32-foot teepee with presentations to the grassy area in the peninsula. We will also have archeological displays for educational purposes inside the teepee.

2014 Vendor Application Form

The deadline for submitting an application is September 1st. For a copy of the 2014 application, CLICK HERE.

Directions to Powwow

Please see the map link HERE for driving directions and how to find the park ENTRANCE.

Once you arrive at the site, drive into the ENTRANCE and follow the road to the left. You will be directed past the parking lot and buildings on your right, into the turnaround driveway. The vendor coordinator will check you in, provide you with your Vendor Packet and give you instructions. For questions, please call us at 512-393-3310

Check-in Times and Parking for Vendors

The check-in time will be 7:00 AM.

You will be asked to unload and immediately park your vehicle across the street in the Bobcat Stadium parking lot. You will need to walk back to the site to finish your set up -- however, we will have golf carts to drive you back if you wait in the shuttle areas.

For a site map showing the location of your booth, please check back with us.
