Summer time is pow wow season for First Nations throughout Alberta. The pow wow is a mixture of traditional dances and ceremonies, and a competition. All of the dancers and drummers are competing to be the best in their category. The pow wow is very colourful and interesting, there is rarely any cost, and everyone is welcome to attend. They are generally held on a First Nation, and information on the location and the time can be difficult to find, outside of the aboriginal community. There is usually a “grand entry” in the afternoon, and again in the evening, when all of the dancers, as well as all of the dignitaries from the community enter the pow wow grounds. It’s a really colourful and exciting event. There are usually many vendors, selling food, drink, and crafts. It’s a good idea to bring a lawn chair, a blanket, and rain wear, because the events are usually held outside. There is generally free camping available, but there are limited services available (like showers!).
