Annual Thanksgiving Pow Wow

In 1971, the first Poarch Creek Thanksgiving Pow Wow originated to celebrate the homecoming of Tribal Citizens.

Their Tribe descended from the original Creek Nation. But unlike many of the Creek Tribes and others in the southeast, the Poarch Creeks were able to avoid being removed from the original land they’ve inhabited for thousands of years. The Poarch Creeks have shown their appreciation for their preservation over the years and rejoiced their beautiful cultural roots by holding their Pow Wow each year. Their tradition represents around 20 tribal nations with their dance competition.
In the 1980s, the Poarch Creeks welcomed all tribes and local citizens to experience their traditions with an annual festival on Thanksgiving and the day after on the same original Tribal land. Since then, the festival has grown to welcome approximately 16,000 visitors for two days of cultural appreciation and family-friendly fun.
