Wiikwemkoong 60th
Annual Cultural Festival

July 31st, August 1st & 2nd, 2021

The Wiikwemkoong 60th Annual Cultural Festival has been postponed until 2021.

“In careful deliberation by all involved in planning this event, organizers have decided to postpone the 60th Celebration until 2021. We understand that the world has become a different place due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, and we must continue to take all precautions to keep everyone safe” 

July 31st, August 1st & 2nd, 2021

In 1961, Wikwemikong Band Member Rosemary Odjig sought to revitalize the Pow Wow in Wikwemikong and held the very first “Wikwemikong Indian Days” held during the summer of that year. Since then the name would change to the Wikwemikong Annual Cultural Festival and would be revered as one of the largest, longest running Pow Wow in North Eastern North America.
