Powwow at Liberty Park on July 24th

This is the place… where Native Americans have long made their home. While for many, July 24 marks a celebration of the arrival of the Mormon Pioneers to the Salt Lake Valley, for others the date has become a celebration of the long history of the area’s Native American populations.

The North American Celebration in the Park (NACIP) Powwow is an event sharing Native American culture through song, music, dance and drums and cultural preservation. Native American tribes and communities and the wider public are invited to support the event in the midst of the State of Utah pioneer day celebrations. The event advocates Native American presence through a united effort.

Families are invited to celebrate the first Utahns, or indigenous people of this continent, though a day of fun and educational activities:

  • Fireworks at 10 pm
  • 23rd Annual Intertribal Powwow
  • Food Booths
  • Arts & Crafts Booths
  • Entertainment
  • Children’s Activities
  • Cultural Sharing
  • Everyone Welcome
  • Family Activities
  • Native Dancers from throughout the Country

The NACIP is NOT affiliated with the Days of 47 festivities or any pioneer related activities. For additional event information, visit
