​Vendors will offer a wide array of products like Sweetgrass, T-shirts, Handcrafted Zuni and Navajo silver jewelry, Wampum jewelry, Beadwork, Kachina Dolls, Pottery, Leathergoods and so much more! We will also offer cultural lifeways demonstrations like Lenape Cooking, Flute making, and Basketry. You can also try your hand at tomahawk throwing!

We didn’t forget the kids, in fact our Children’s Area includes activities to create Native American inspired crafts like “wampum” bracelets, Sand Art, Totem Poles. And just around the corner…..Pony Rides!

​No Native American festival would be complete without food….specifically frybread and Indian Tacos. Thanks to Robyn Tone-Pah-Hote, Kiowa Nation, we will have both…yum! Additional foods for sale will include Buffalo Burgers, Hamburger, Hotdogs, Corn Soup, and of course……fire roasted corn!

​This year, the American Indian Collectors Association of the Northeast (IACANE) will host their Native American Artifact Show at our Roasting Ears of Corn Festival.
