Held each year in August, IN THE SPIRIT: Contemporary Native Arts Market and Festival encompasses a day of dancing, drumming, singing, and shopping with a diverse group of Native American artists. The festival is the final celebration of the IN THE SPIRIT Contemporary Native Arts Exhibit held annually at the History Museum, during which we will present the People’s Choice Award. The Museum plaza will be filled with vendors selling exquisite artwork in all price ranges. Round out your festival experience by catching performances of native singers, musicians, and dance groups throughout the day. The History Museum and all festival activities are FREE and open to the public.
