What to Expect at Seafair Powwow:

If you have never been to our Seafair Powwow, we welcome you and are excited that you are coming. Here are a few things you may want to know before you attend.

  • This is an outdoor Pow wow. We Powwow, come rain or shine! So please plan accordingly, whether it means bring your umbrella because of rain that day, or bring sunscreen. We have bleachers seating, but it is limited, so feel free to bring your lawn, camping, chair, and/or blanket. We also have local Native artists selling authentic, hand crafted jewelry, arts and crafts and clothing. There will be food vendors, at our pow wow. Ever have Frybread? If not, then have one at our Seafair Pow wow, (it is fried dough, a delicious indulgent!) Good idea to bring cash, as some vendors do not accept credit cards.
  • There are standard protocols (guiding principles and expected behavior) dictating how the Pow Wow is conducted.  Learn more about protocols here.
