The 2018 Muddy Run Powwow is Cancelled
A Message from Arvil Meisenhelter,
We are saddened to report that after a great deal of consideration we have decided to cancel the Muddy Run Pow Wow. Our major concern is for the safety of all those involved in the Pow Wow and the public who would be attending. The hurricane has impacted our friends to the south. Many of them are in an emergency situation. Our thoughts are with them. Our local area has had very heavy rainfall recently and any threat of rain creates additional concerns. Due to the recent local weather conditions and potential weather caused from Hurricane Florence, we felt it was our responsibility to cancel the Pow Wow.
We appreciate the efforts of all those who worked on this Pow Wow. Their efforts are appreciated. Wanishi
Muddy Run Powwow is our outdoor, end of summer gathering, that began in 2009 as an addition to the Lawilowan American Indian Festival held in the midwinter. It coincides with traditional celebrations held at the time of year for gathering of harvest and provides an opportunity for both observers and participants to connect with American Indian culture on a deeper level in a natural environment. The two day, non-competitive, traditional powwow is one of the largest in the area and draws as many as 350 dancers, 30 vendors, and about 2000 attendees each year. Muddy Run Powwow provides a family friendly environment for local native peoples to celebrate the many tribes from which they hail and share their traditions and customs with the public.
The 2017 Pow-wow will be held September 16th & 17th. Saturday the 16th, the gate will open at 10 am with Grand Entry at noon. Dancing will end at 9 pm. Sunday the 17th, the gate will open at 10 am Grand Entry at noon. Dancing will end at 5 pm
On site camping is available for vendors and dancers only. Muddy Run Recreation Park runs a public campground near the pow-wow site. Reservations can be made thru Muddy Run Recreation Park.
The address for this powwow is 172 Bethesda Church Rd, Holtwood Pa, 17532.
