Gathering at the Falls Powwow

  • overview

    The Gathering at the Falls Powwow is held in Spokane, WA each year in August. The history of this event, and the significance of gathering at the Spokane River, goes back generations. It has been a sacred tradition for many tribes around the northwest to gather at the river because it gives life, love, hope, and a sense of revitalization. During past years, Riverfront Park has been home to this event and it has become a tradition for people of all nations to gather and celebrate those gifts the river provides and to create and renew friendships. Dancers and singers, young and old, come from both near and far to showcase their songs and their dance styles for our community. It is, without a doubt, a unique cultural gathering that brings in thousands to enjoy.

    The 27th Annual Gathering at the Falls Powwow will be held on Aug. 24 at 7pm and 25 at 1pm & 7pm With a Youth Powwow on Aug. 26, 2017 12noon
