The Gathering of Nations in Albuquerque is the largest Pow Wow in North America. It is held annually, always in Albuquerque, New Mexico and draws tribal people from all over North America, Central America and South America. There is nothing like it anywhere – nothing even comes close – and it gets bigger and better every year.
Gathering on Nations
April 22-24, 2010
UNM Football Stadium
Avenida Cesar Chavez & University Blvd SE
Interstate 25 exit 223
The highlights of this spectacular and magical event are the talent show and Crowning of Miss Indian World, and the unique Indian Trader’s Market. Don’t miss either. The biggest pow wow ever also includes lots of singing, drumming, dancing, selling of crafts and sharing of cultures and foods. People say that the Balloon Fiesta is the most colorful event in New Mexico, but I have to say I think the Gathering of Nations is the most colorful event I have ever seen anywhere, and I have been to plenty of Balloon Fiestas.
You may buy tickets for The Gathering of Nations at their official website, where you will also find a schedule of events and everything else you may need to know. We still have availability at our Albuquerque bed and breakfast during the Gathering of Nations, and we are located less than five miles from UNM Football Stadium, and less than one mile from the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, (which you will also want to visit when you come to Albuquerque).
Traditionally, the Gathering of Nations is held at The Pit, but this year it will be held at UNM Football Stadium, which is right across the street from the Pit, to the east across University Blvd. The talent shows and Miss Indian World events will be held at the Kiva Auditorium in the Albuquerque Convention Center, Downtown Albuquerque. These two venues are only a couple of miles from each other.
