The Queens County Farm Museum will host New York City’s longest-running American Indian Pow-Wow, the 39th annual Thunderbird American Indian Mid-Summer Pow-Wow, that will feature three days of intertribal Native American dance competitions.

More than 40 Indian nations will be represented from Friday, July 28 through Sunday, July 30. Chanting, drumming and brilliantly colored, finely detailed regalia will provide stimulating entertainment for people of all ages. All dance competitions and performances will be narrated, allowing an appreciation of the rich tradition and culture that is being shared.

There will also be vendors selling moderately priced American Indian theme merchandise: art, jewelry, crafts and more.

American Indian food booths will feature such items as traditional Indian fry bread and Navajo tacos, in addition to non-Indian food vendors.

Weekend visitors will also have full access to the farm grounds and museum. Take a hayride, tour the historic Adriance Farmhouse or shop the farm’s fresh-picked produce. Parking is free. Admission is $10 per day for adults (or $16 for a weekend pass). Children’s admission (12 and under) is $5 per day or $7 for the weekend pass.

Gates open on Friday at 6 p.m., with performances from 7 to 10 p.m. On Saturday, gates open at 10 a.m. with performances from noon to 5 p.m. and then again from 7 to 10 p.m. On Sunday, gates open at 10 a.m. with performances from noon to 5 p.m.

The Queens County Farm Museum is located at 73-50 Little Neck Parkway in Floral Park. Visit www.queensfarm.org or call 718-347-3276 for more information.
