Stanford Powwow

Mother's Day Weekend

May 8th - 10th



The Stanford American Indian Organization (SAIO) and the Stanford Powwow Planning Committee will host the 44th Annual Stanford Powwow on May 8-10th, 2015 on the Stanford University campus. The Powwow will be held in the Eucalyptus Grove at Galvez and Campus Drives. The Stanford Powwow is open to the public and overnight camping spaces are available. Donations for parking and camping are welcome. Campers must register to camp, and registration is open on Friday, May 8th, from 4 to 8pm, and Saturday, May 9th, from 11am to 2pm. There is no pre-registration, and registration is done on a first come, first served, basis. However, there should be plenty of room for anyone who wants to camp. Also, no personal tents or canopies are allowed on the powwow grounds until 3pm on Friday. This gives our facilities team adequate time to set up.
