The rhythm is infection; tap your feet and clap your hands as the drummers play traditional songs, and dancers in a rainbow of feathered, jewelled and intricately beaded Regalia spin and stomp in time.
Welcome to the annual Wendake International Pow Wow, celebrated each summer welcoming Indigenous Nations from across North America. This important festival highlights authentic First Nations Traditions and Culture at the Carrefour Artistique de Wendake. Listen to Traditional songs; feast on wild game and Pow Wow bannock treats; browse unique handicrafts in the artisan fair, dance all night to Indigenous DJs playing the latest ‘pow wow step’ tunes, all just 20 minutes away from Quebec City.
Bring the whole family to watch the international dance & drum competitions held within the heart of the community at the magnificent open-air dance circle next to Akiawenrahk’ River. The PowWow is the ideal moment to immerse yourself in the vibrant culture of the Huron-Wendat Nation and learn more about how the community is safeguarding their Traditions.
