Stanford Powwow

Mother's Day Weekend

May 10 - 12, 2019



The Stanford American Indian Organization (SAIO) and the Stanford Powwow Planning Committee will host the 48th Annual Stanford Powwow on May 10-12, 2019 on the Stanford University campus. The Powwow will be held in the Eucalyptus Grove at Galvez and Campus Drives. The Stanford Powwow is open to the public and overnight camping spaces are available. No personal tents or canopies are allowed on the powwow grounds until 3pm on Friday. This gives our facilities team adequate time to set up.

Any questions can be directed to 650-723-4078 or powwow-cochairs@lists.stanford.edu.

Because of steadily increasing prices for equipment and services, Stanford Powwow will be implementing flat rates for parking and/or camping starting this year at the 48th Annual Stanford Powwow on May 10-12, 2019.

Parking fee: $20/vehicle
Camping fee: $35 (vehicle parking included)

Admission to the event will remain free. We want to continue to include the larger community of Stanford and attendees from across the country and Canada in this memorable event. The Stanford Powwow greatly appreciates your support and understanding. We look forward to having you join us!
