We go to Red Earth every year that we can. My children have always loved seeing the native art. They also have a fun kids' area. Best of all of the native dancing. My little ones sit mesmerized for long periods of time, as the dancers perform. This year was less exciting than previous years. Apparently, due to budget cuts... More

Don't miss this annual array of colors and culture. Teh paprade on Friday winds through the streets of downtown. Princesses and dancers show off their regalia. The Festival itself is filled with fine art, food and cultural demonstrations in a very welcoming and casual atmosphere.

It was a fantastic experience ..I recommend it to anyone anytime. It was majestic seeing all the authentic garb worn by the tribes and the dancing and chanting with the drums was amazing.

I've been to the Red Earth Festival many times. Other than the year it was moved to Remington Park (bad idea) it's always a pleasure to attend. There is a wide selection of art and craft from sources you are guaranteed are authentic, and the quality is excellent. In addition, the dance competitions are spectacular. You can watch excellent dancers... More

I went to both the '91 & '93 festivals & bragged to my wife about how good is WAS! I was told that the same weekend there were multiple Pow Wows in nearby states!! That was not the case before , why the lack of respect for a 30 year old event?? Enjoyed the competitors who did make the festival... More

The Red Earth Festival is a great place to see and learn about the artistic, musical and historical aspects of Oklahoma's Native American citizens. As much as I love the REF, in recent years it has lost some of its flair and impact. The first few years it really was a great affair. The parade downtown was great and fun.... More

Yes the Indians are on the war path...uh make that art path and display some truly outstand works. Oklahoma's are proud of this event and it is a chance to visit with Tribal folks from Oklahoma and across the country. Traditional and Powwow dancing is a highlight. A destination.

I loved the music, the dancers, and the costumes. I am disappointed that it has become so small. Perhaps new blood at the leadership, but it is a wonderful event.

We didn't even know about the event until this year. We generally do the art market in Santa Fe each year, and this is a lot smaller venue. But the quality of the works was in general very good. Prices are less than half what you would expect in SF or Albuquerque, and some of the new artists that cannot... More
