Labor Day & Native American Weekend

Labor Day & Native American Weekend

August 31 - September 2, 2018

Savor every last drop of summer with one final, grand goodbye during this long weekend. Dozens of activities will leave you at no loss of what to do, whether you choose to stay busy or relish the joys of doing very little.

During this weekend, learn about the vibrant traditions of Native Americans from special guests of Cherokee descent, Jeannie “E Nah Dah” Cranford and Michael “Thunder Dancer Sees the Ground” Cranford. This weekend includes storytelling, dance, and ceremonial dress presentations, as well as hands-on workshops.
