Pow Wow Traditional DanceLet the entire family will enjoy the visually stunning display as nearly 1000 native dancers and drum singing groups perform dressed in full native regalia! The Pow Wow is the center piece of the 13th annual Canadian Aboriginal Festival with visitors from all parts of Canada and around the world gathered in Toronto at the Rogers Centre (SkyDome) to witness this most beautiful traditional ceremony.

It is Canada's largest Aboriginal festival and one of Toronto's most successful festivals. It is an exciting and welcoming event for everyone! Tickets are $25 for a family day pass, $10 for adults and $5 for children. For more information visit http://www.canab.com.

Each of the Pow Wow ceremonies begins with the Grand Entry, when all dancers enter the Dance Circle for the first time. The pageantry and drama of the Grand Entry make it one of the most beautiful traditional Aboriginal ceremonies and a must see for anyone interested in native culture and customs.

The Canadian Aboriginal Festival is a multi-faceted event and Pow Wow is many things to many people. It is a time to thank the Creator, honour our warriors, meet old and new friends, share and enjoy the rich heritage and culture of our people as well as an opportunity to display or purchase arts and crafts.
