Please join us for this traditional Native American trade festival at Kule Loklo, a Coast Miwok Cultural Exhibit. Throughout the day demonstrators will exhibit their skills in basketry, flint knapping, clamshell bead making, and more. Learn more about the culture and traditions of the Coast Miwok and other local American Indians at a variety of informational booths. Traditional dancers from the Intertribal Pomo group and Dry Creek Pomo dance group will share dances. Vendors will also be selling a wide variety of crafts.

Please be aware that dogs and alcoholic beverages are not allowed at Kule Loklo.

This event is great for the whole family and is free of charge. Bring a picnic lunch and spend the day.
