Georgia Veterans PowWow / November 19th & 20th, 2011
#1 Veterans PowWow & Festival in the Southeast
The Georgia National Veterans PowWow & Festival, Canton, GA is the #1 Veterans PowWow & Festival in the Southeast. Since its inception in 2007, we have grown in both performers and crafter's vying for a placement, our attendance records have continued to grow. As a result we have moved the Pow Wow & Festival from Canton, Georgia to a beautiful park on the Coosawattee River in Ellijay, Georgia.
The park is where the Georgia Apple Festival is held yearly drawing 30,000 plus visitors. We feel confident the new location will prove vital to our growth as it continues on its quest to becoming a Mega Georgia event. The park has ample parking and a built-in traffic flow from Atlanta. With the seasonal travelers who visit the region and other places in NC and SC during this time of year to view the brilliancy of the fall colors, we expect to once again triple our audience at this years event.
We welcome the best of crafter's and artists to join us for our closing season event. A handsome array of dancers are traveling from across the country to compete in a high dollar dance-off in Porch Creek Alabama and are looking to put us on their travel rounds even though we are a contingency event. These are real Native dancers who love to dance and we plan on hosting them with a daily handsome feast as well as specialty contest rounds for cash and prizes.
Award winning artist Arvel Bird, Native American Fiddlist/Flutist/Storyteller, is only one of the performance artists scheduled to perform this year. A classically trained violinist, Arvel Bird plays contemporary Native American Music, Bluegrass, Celtic, Folk, Country and Old-Time music. Before becoming an award-winning musical artist in his own right, Arvel cut his teeth for 11-years touring with such internationally recognized artists as Glen Campbell, Clay Walker, Louise Mandrell, Tom T. Hall, Ray Price, Loretta Lynn and many others. On his own he has shared the stage with the Gatlin Brothers, Shenandoah, Highway 101, R. Carlos Nakai, Bill Miller, Robert Tree Code, Jim Boyd, Micki Free and many others. Arvel Bird is unquestionably the most renowned Native American violinist in the world. More musical artists TBA.
