Schedule

Always the second week in October, the 2018 San Manuel Pow-Wow is on Friday, October 12, Saturday, October 13 and Sunday October 14.

The annual event will be held on California State University, San Bernardino’s athletic field.

It’s free to the public and filled with lots of Native American culture, music, dance, food and cash prizes.

Some cultural traditions at the Pow Wow include special songs such as flag, honor, memorial, veteran, prayer, closing, and any other song so designated by the emcee. When one is sung, stand and remove your cap or hat during its entirety.

Traditional music will be performed and Pow Wow attendees are encouraged to dance.

Authentic Native American dishes and novelty items will be available for purchase from vendors.

Over $250,000 in cash prizes will be given out to contestants competing in the native dance and singing competitions.
