Mendota’s 18th Annual Traditional Wacipi-Pow Wow


  • St Peter's Church Grounds 1405 Sibley Memorial Highway Mendota Heights, MN, 55120 United States (map)

Consider supporting our friends at the 18th Annual Mendota Wacipi! A wacipi is not a ceremony but a social gathering--all are welcome. Hear the drum and singing circle, see the fancy dancing, and enjoy dozens of traditional craft vendors and edibles at one of Mni Sota Makoce's most sacred sites.

$5 entry button donation, no one turned away!

*The wacipi needs volunteers, canopies (2x 30x40 ft), 6-8 8-ft tables, and folding chairs. Anything you'd like to help with is greatly appreciated. Pidamaya ye (thank you in Dakota).

For more information, call 651-452-4141.
