Rainy River First Nations Pow Wow

Festival Event

Each year in June the Rainy River First Nations host a pow wow. Pow wow is a traditional cultural practice which features traditional drum songs and dancing held in an arbour, which is the traditional structure built to hold these events.

It is a community celebration in a family atmosphere of fun and celebration. There are specials with prizes awarded for different styles of dance in a variety of areas, with organized events for all age groups.

The 2014 event takes place June 20 to 22, at the Rainy River First Nations Pow Wow grounds.

Camping is available at the site, as are washroom facilities, food vendors, and the like.

Visitors are welcome to come and witness the festivities and join in the fun.
