Description from the Denver Art Museum website:

Join us for the 30th Annual Friendship Powwow and American Indian Cultural Celebration! Everyone is welcome and general admission is free.

One of the Denver Art Museum's (DAM) longest-running events, the 30th Annual Friendship Powwow and American Indian Cultural Celebration will feature American Indian dancers, drum groups, artist booths, and more.

The DAM's Friendship Powwow is a celebration of the vitality of American Indian cultures.

Throughout the day, visitors can watch dance competitions, participate in hands-on activities, and enjoy their first (or 101st!) piece of fry bread.

This year’s Friendship Powwow celebrates the life of Nancy Blomberg, who served as a curator at the DAM for 28 years, overseeing the American Indian, African and Oceanic art collections. A new song composed for the DAM, and in honor of Blomberg, by Andy Cozad (Kiowa) will debut during the Friendship Powwow in the afternoon.

All powwow activities and general museum admission are free.

Please note that the powwow is located on Martin Plaza again this year, just east of the museum entrance between 12th and 13th Ave.

Grand Entry is at 11 am.
