2013 Indian Market and Festival schedule

by Jaq Nigg, Eiteljorg festival and markets manager | Jun 17, 2013

So Much to See and Do!

This Saturday and Sunday (June 22 and 23), Military Park will be rocking to drums and Native American flute at the 21st annual Indian Market and Festival. It’s time to prepare.

The sweet smell of frybread will fill the air, while artists show off their creations and kids frolic through the misting tent.


Don’t miss a chance to browse the artist booths; make guitar pick jewelry in the family activity area; listen to the storyteller; rock out; and then get something to eat. Whew! It’s a lot, but you can do it! 

The best way to head into the weekend is with an action plan. Here’s the entertainment schedule to get you started.

 Festivals manager Jaq Nigg will celebrate her 12th Indian Market & Festival on a golf cart; with a walkie talkie against her ear; and eating as many Indian tacos as is humanly possible. She has to, it’s her job.
