Miccosukee Indian Arts & Crafts Festival
The Miccosukee Tribe of Indians of Florida continues a beloved South Florida celebration, the Miccosukee Indian Arts & Crafts Festival. Now in its fifth decade, the Festival honors the gathering tradition and brings together the South Florida community with First Nations and Aboriginal members of North America.
This weeklong event that takes place the last week of the year, beginning the day after Christmas, is a testament to the linking threads that exist amongst Native people and by extension, the richly diverse makeup of South Florida’s community. Enjoy authentic foods, alligator demonstrations and the Everglades on our airboat rides as well as the cultures and traditions of other tribes.
Each year, featured artists from well-known Native American dance companies perform various dances, including the popular hoop dancing. The Miccosukee Indian Arts & Crafts Festival enables visitors to learn about the heritage and lifestyle of the Native American Indian Tribes. Additionally, it showcases artwork and clothing designed by Native American Indian artisans and performances by Native American dancers and singers. Visitors can enjoy authentic, American Indian foods, watch alligator demonstrations and experience the Everglades on airboat rides. The experience is culturally rich.
