The Annual Native American Festival & Pow Wow will return to Indian Springs again this year, featuring native arts, crafts, music and dancing, storytelling and a lot of fun for those attending. Now in its 29th year, the festival has become a huge draw for Central Georgia, held in the heart of Indian Springs, a former town and area that was once the home to the Creek tribe of Native Americans. It will be held this year on Saturday, September 8th and Sunday, September 9th, 2018.
The festival is held annually on the grounds of the historic Indian Springs Hotel, built by William McIntosh, a half Creek, half Scottish Chief in the early 1820’s. The hotel, which is now a museum, is owned by the County Government and curated by the Butts County Historical Society, which will be hosting the festival. This well-attended event is a great opportunity for young people to learn about the Native American history, their culture and rituals that have endured for centuries.
This year will feature Native American Arts and Crafts, Music, Dancing, Storytelling, Food and Fun for all. More information will be posted as it comes available but be sure to mark your calendars for the 29th Annual Native American Festival!
