Rate This Event

 

Experience the 99th Annual Southern Ute Tribal Fair and Powwow on September 13-15, 2019 at the Sky Ute Fairgrounds in Ignacio, Colorado. The weekend-long Powwow kicks off Friday night and goes through Sunday with most of the events taking place at the fairgrounds. A big draw to the Southern Ute Tribal Fair and Powwow is the dance and drum contests with thousands of dollars in prize money. Visitors can enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of the powwow as the Powwow participants sing, drum and dance, with many wearing traditional tribal regalia.
