2019 Stanford Powwow

Rate This Event

 

Join us for the 48th Annual Stanford Powwow on May 10-12, 2019 at the Stanford University Eucalyptus Grove in Stanford, California. The Stanford American Indian Organization (SAIO) and the Stanford Powwow Planning Committee host the Stanford Powwow each Mother’s Day Weekend. The powwow is open to the public and overnight camping spaces are available.

Stanford Powwow

Donations for parking and camping are welcome. There is no pre-registration, and registration is done on a first come, first served, basis. However, there should be plenty of room for anyone who wants to camp. Also, no personal tents or canopies are allowed on the powwow grounds until 3pm on Friday. This gives our facilities team adequate time to set up.
