    Occaneechee State Park Pow Wow

    Clarksville, VA

    434-374-2210 (Park)

    The pow wow is held at the park and don’t forget to bring your lawn chairs. There is usually food available….love those Indian tacos! There are usually vendors as well. I think we paid $5 to get into the park and that covered our entrance into the pow wow as well. I know that Mike and Jeannie Cranford will be there (Thunderdancer and Enada). For more information, you could call the number listed above.

    I plan to attend this event. I attended last year and had a great time. I’ll be sure to share photos.

    Felicia is graduating, getting her hard-won B.A. the same day as this pow wow. I’m planning on being at her graduation. We’ll just have to pick some other pow wows to focus on this year.

    Hi Linda,

    Felicia told me she wouldn’t be attending this year due to her graduation. Yeah for her! I’ll be at the graduation in Spirit. It is truly to be a proud day for her. Maybe we can plan to interact at a different event.

    Take care
