2019 Red Earth Festival and Powwow
Don’t miss the 32nd Annual Red Earth Festival and Powwow on June 7-9, 2019 at the Cox Convention Center Arena in downtown Oklahoma City Oklahoma. The award-winning festival draws more than 1,000 American Indian dancers, singers and artists from dozens of North America tribes who celebrate the richness and diversity of their heritage with the world. For three exciting days, Oklahoma City will be at the center of Native American art and culture as more than 30,000 people gather to celebrate. National Geographic and Good Morning America have covered Red Earth, and it has been named by USA Today as one of 10 Great Places to Celebrate American Indian Culture.
Red Earth Festival and Powwow
Since its beginning in 1987, the Red Earth Festival and Powwow has matured into one of the most respected visual and performing arts events of its type – setting the standard for many of today’s Indian art shows held throughout the nation. At Red Earth, guests can sample the work of some of the nation’s most celebrated artists, with opportunities to purchase contemporary and traditional examples of beadwork, basketry, jewelry, pottery, sculpture, paintings, graphics and cultural attire during the juried art show and market.
The dance competition at Red Earth is one of the rare occasions when dancers from America’s Northern and Southern tribes can be seen together in one venue. Red Earth dancers represent the elite of Native American dance, some of the most gifted and accomplished in the world. The masters, each in their own distinctive tribal dress, exhibit their originality and skills in one of the most prestigious of all native dance competitions.
Red Earth Festival Parade
On Friday morning amid 50-story skyscrapers the Grand Parade will kick off the weekend with an explosion of tribal culture featuring dancers, floats, Indian princesses, a football field-sized flag, honor guards, Indian firefighters, horse-drawn stagecoaches and brilliant regalia. The streets of downtown Oklahoma City will vibrate in Native American tribal spirit as tribal representatives, in full regalia, make the Red Earth Parade one of America’s most unique processions.
