Oklahoma Red Earth Native American Cultural Festival

mid June – Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

top Pow Wow USA eventsThe Red Earth Native American Cultural Festival opens in June every year in downtown Oklahoma City, OK

More than 1,200 American Indian artists and dancers from throughout North America gather to celebrate the richness and diversity of their heritage with the world.





For three exciting days Oklahoma City is at the center of Native American art and culture in America as more than 30,000 people gather to celebrate.

Through the years Red Earth has matured into one of the most respected visual and performing arts event of its type – setting the standard for many of today’s Indian art shows held throughout the nation. The Red Earth Festival has been named Oklahoma’s Outstanding Event by the Oklahoma Tourism & Recreation Department, a Top 100 Event in North America by the American Bus Association, and Central Oklahoma’s Outstanding Cultural Tourism Event by Frontier Country Marketing Association.

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.

A grand parade, unlike any other parade in the world, opens the Annual Red Earth Festival on Friday morning. The streets of downtown Oklahoma City will vibrate in Native American tribal spirit as representatives of more than 100 tribes, in full tribal regalia, make the Red Earth Parade one of America’s most unique.
 
The Red Earth Art Market opens on Friday and the first Grand Entry of dance competitors begins at noon inside the Cox Convention Center Arena. The Red Earth Run, a 5k & 10k run, scheduled for the Saturday on Regatta Park River Trails along the Oklahoma River in downtown Oklahoma City, is open to runners and walkers of all ages and abilities.
