Sacred Springs Powwow

October 7-8, 2023

The Sacred Springs Powwow is a two-day annual celebration of the culture, art, traditions and languages of the native population known as the Coahuiltecans that have been part of the San Marcos area for thousands of years. 

More than 100 native dancers from across Texas gather at the Meadows Center dressed in beautiful, hand-crafted regalia and compete all day to the beat of traditional drums and songs. 

In addition to the dancing and performers, the Sacred Springs Powwow will have lots of vendors at the Grand Market with indigenous arts, crafts and authentic Native American food and drink. 

A youth art tent will also allow children to create a piece of art of their own. The powwow’s Native Culture Tent hosts presentations and lectures to educate attendees on native culture and history.
