The annual UCR Pow Wow is an inter-tribal social gathering celebrating Native American culture and traditions through singing, drumming, and dancing. Traditional Native American dancers, drum groups, bird singers, and other artists will be present, and vendors will sell food, handmade Native American jewelry, arts and crafts, and other merchandise.
The Arts & Crafts Vendor application deadline is May 10th. We will notify vendors if they are accepted to our Pow Wow. Do not show up on the day of the event if you have not gotten a confirmation form us.
