Set in the scenic Little Lehigh Parkway, the Roasting Ears of Corn Festival at the Museum of Indian Culture is Pennsylvania’s oldest American Indian gathering. Around the 3rd weekend in August, this family-friendly fun includes two award-winning powwow drums and traditional American Indian music, storytelling, and dancers from tribes throughout North America.
Vendors offer handmade Native American crafts and artwork, and demonstrations include flintknapping, primitive cooking, artifact displays, atlatl and tomahawk throwing, flute making, sweetgrass basketry, porcupine quillwork, and more. A full concession stand offers traditional foods like buffalo and frybread, and volunteers man a large children’s craft area. The festival is a local favorite and its fame spreads farther each year!
Fun and educational for people of all ages.
