On Saturday February 5, 2022 and Sunday February 6,2022, the Arizona American Indian Tourism Association (AAITA), in partnership with Arizona’s Native American tribes along with the City of Scottsdale’s Western Week, hosts its annual Arizona Indian Festival in Downtown Scottsdale free attendance, and open to the public. In addition, and part of the Arizona Indian Festival we are excited to bring back the popular Arizona Native Edible Desert Experience. This curated evening brings together Native American Chefs working with ancestral foods in contemporary dishes alongside contemporary Native American Artists and traditionalists showcasing and demonstrating both art and food ways practices. This is a ticketed event and due to demand we encourage advance ticket purchase.
The AAITA will take all reasonable measures to ensure the safety of festival participants, volunteers, and attendees, complying with local, state, and federal guidelines to slow the spread of the Covid-19. The safety of our communities and attendees is foremost in all the planning and production of this event.
The festival is held in conjunction with Scottsdale’s Western Week. The Arizona Indian Festival is unique in its format and ability to present Arizona tribes in its program and event footprint that includes traditional Indian Villages, traditional arts and craft demonstrations, native food vendors, and native mainstage entertainment representative of many tribes and Tribal Travel and Tourism offices showcasing their native destinations.
Attendees at the Arizona Indian Festival will experience traditional food, storytelling, traditional dancing, singing, and traditional dwellings represented within the village area. Attendees will walk away fascinated by the native beauty that Arizona has to offer.
