About the Seattle Seafair Powwow
More than 35 years of Seafair Powwows … It is a proud tradition that brings Native Americans of all tribes and cultures together to celebrate.
United Indians’ Seafair Indian Days Powwow is held annually and generally on the third weekend in July, in conjunction with Seattle Seafair, at our Powwow Grounds adjacent to the Daybreak Star Indian Cultural Center.
Attendance over the 3-day event ranges from 7,000-10,000, including visitors, dancers, musicians, vendors and tourists. This proud tradition brings Native Americans of all tribes and cultures together to celebrate. UIATF has held the 3 day long celebration in conjunction with Seafair for the past 30 years.
The Powwow showcases traditional Indian cooking, jewelry-making, music, and especially dancing. Throughout the day, tribes from the United States and Canada dance in full tribal regalia. All are welcome, Native and non-Native alike! If this is your first time attending a Powwow, we invite you to look at our FAQ page for information and best practices. You can also visit our 2018 and 2019 Powwow pages to learn more about past events.
Our theme for 2022—“Remember, Reconnect, Revive”—celebrates being able to gather as a community at the Powwow again after two long years on hold. All are welcome to enjoy wonderful dance, music, food, and more as we proudly celebrate and share our culture.
The United Indians of All Tribes Foundation 2023 Seafair Powwow vending application opens 5/1/22. The application collects the info that we need to ensure you have a place to vend, your details, and your payment. We will not be collecting payment at the Powwow. Food vendors are by invite only.

The Powwow will be held at Daybreak Star Indian Cultural Center. Directions to Daybreak Star can be found here.
We will be running a shuttle from parking lots 2 and 3 and the North parking lot in Discovery Park to the Powwow entrance. We will also be running golf carts circling continuously between the North parking lot and the Powwow entrance to pick up Elders, vets, and handicapped people as needed.

Sign up to volunteer at the Powwow here! Our community events are the backbone of our organization, bringing community together and often bringing in much support for our programs. However, these events could not happen without the generous support of dedicated volunteers. There are a variety of volunteer opportunities within these events, including setting up, cleaning, serving food, assisting elders, and much more.
