American Indian Expo
Anadarko's annual American Indian Expo showcases the arts, crafts and traditions of 13 plains Indian tribes. This event also features one of the largest American Indian parades in Oklahoma. Long championed as the first and only all-Indian operated cultural event of its kind, the American Indian Expo has garnered a wide variety of notoriety and acclaim over the years.
Visitors from across the nation and abroad have flocked to Anadarko each summer to witness the expo's colorful dance and pageant presentations. Princesses representing individual tribes are honored at this event each year. Since the late 1930s, many of the country’s most accomplished Native American artists have exhibited and sold their work to visitors of the expo.
Come to the American Indian Expo to enjoy contest dancing, a carnival, parades, dance contests, pageants, games, a fry bread contest, talent presentations, crafts, concessions and to immerse yourself in the history and ways of present-day Native American tribes. There will also be a poker run, an archery competition and plenty of delicious food.
