Stanford Powwow

Mother's Day Weekend

May 12th - 14th, 2017



The Stanford American Indian Organization (SAIO) and the Stanford Powwow Planning Committee will host the 46th Annual Stanford Powwow on May 12-14th, 2017 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. Donations for parking and camping are welcome. There is no pre-registration, and registration is done on a first come, first served, basis. However, there should be plenty of room for anyone who wants to camp. Also, 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.
