This family-friendly event features youth and adult powwows with competitive and non-competitive dancing, storytelling, a talent show, church service, live entertainment, and gospel sing.

Since 1988, the Oklahoma Indian Summer Festival has been sponsored by the Cherokee, Delaware and Osage tribes of Indians. Those three Indian tribes located in Green Country, Oklahoma, have played a significant role in the Bartlesville area.
Friday and Saturday the festival opens at 10 am and closes late night after the pow wow, with both days full of activities and presentations.
Food concessions as well as arts and crafts vendors will be open throughout the festival.
Admission is free and the public is encouraged to attend this premiere event of area cultures.
