Powwow Tips

Arrive early to find parking (we recommend arriving by 10:30 a.m.).

Bring a lawn chair to sit on the grounds (be careful not to set up on the dance floor!) or a blanket to sit on the bleachers. Saving one or two seats in the bleachers is allowed in powwow etiquette 🙂

Bring cash to buy snacks and shop at the market!
