The festival is the final celebration of the IN THE SPIRIT Contemporary Native Arts Exhibit held annually at the History Museum, during which we will present the People's Choice Award. The Museum will be filled with vendors selling exquisite artwork in all price ranges. Round out your festival experience by catching performances of native singers, musicians, and dance groups throughout the day.
