The Denver Art Museum’s Annual Friendship Powwow and American Indian Cultural Celebration returns with an in-person celebration this September.
This year’s event will be the 32nd, making it one of the museum’s longest running traditions. The event brings dance competitions, vendors, food and speeches from local Indigenous leaders to celebrate the diverse Indigenous communities in Denver and across the Front Range.
This year also marks a return to in person after last year’s event was pushed online due to COVID. And while it usually takes place right outside the DAM, this year the celebration moves to the Denver Indian Center, Inc. on Morrison Rd.
It’s free to attend and will feature American Indian Dance competitions, artist and vendor booths, food by Tocabe, an American Indian Eatery, as well as family games and activities. A portion of the proceeds from sales will benefit the Denver Indian Center.
Masks are required indoors at the center, and they will also be required for all Friendship Powwow attendees.
The DAM’s 32nd Annual Friendship Powwow will take place Sept. 12, 2021, from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. at Denver Indian Center, Inc., 4407 Morrison Rd. It is free to attend.
