MOUNDVILLE FESTIVAL 2018

                                        OCTOBER 3,4,5

Repeatedly named one of Alabama's Top 20 Tourism Events.

Located at the University of Alabama's Moundville Archaeological Park, performers, artists, craftspeople and tradition bearers entertain and educate visitors about the rich culture and heritage that makes Southeastern Indians unique. The festival includes living historians, arts and crafts arbors, a children's area, arts market and trader's circle, food courts, and a stage for performances.

2018 marks the 30th annual Moundville Native American Festival

Come see Native American performers, demonstrators, living history teachers, and crafts vendors here to teach and celebrate Native American culture. Visit the "tools and weapons" range to learn how to throw an atlatl, or visit the Native American stage to watch stomp dancers, social dancing, and hoop dancer extraordinaire Lyndon Alec, and so much more! And don't miss the fantastic music of GrayHawk Perkins and many others. Learn about traditional pottery firing, weaving, bead work, and other crafts! Bring your children to our Children's Area for face painting and make and take crafts. Purchase unique Native American crafts in the vendor's area. The food courts will offer Native American foods and regular festival fare such as hamburgers, hot dogs, and shaved ice. Don't forget to take a tour of the Jones Archaeological Museum and visit the Knotted-Bird gift shop to pick up one of our annual festival t-shirts!

This is a great trip for your students!
