Dozens of vendors (food, arts, and crafts).

Now a competition powwow, the event has grown substantially, hosting between 3,000 – 5,000 visitors each year. We are gratified to have so many guests visit Rama to partake in the event which has been part of the community’s culture for several decades and continues to evolve.
