NON-PROFIT REGISTER | Festival will present Native American culture and traditions | New



New: Attendance at the Denver American Indian Festival has grown so much over its eight-year history that the 2021 edition is moving to a larger venue, the spacious Riverdale Regional Park Fairgrounds, 9755 Henderson Road, Brighton.

The dates are September 25 and 26. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on both days; free entry.

“Since 2014, we have welcomed over 20,000 people and over 81 tribal representatives,” said festival founder and board chair Lynne Holman. “We are so excited to be able to expand and bring the festival to a larger facility in Adams County. We hope this is just a first step towards expanding Native American cultural and performing arts programming in Adams County. “

The festival offers an array of exhibits and attractions that showcase the traditional cultural traditions and performing arts of the American Indian people.

Festival partners are the First Nations Foundation, the American Indigenous Business Leaders, the Metropolitan State University of Denver, the Arvada Center and the Thornton Arts, Sciences & Humanities Council.

About the organization: Managed entirely by volunteers, the Denver American Indian Festival aims to share Native American culture in a way that builds bridges of mutual understanding and support.
