Native American Flute Festivals

There are two "nearby" Native American Flute Festivals. Most of the others are in Florida or out west.

The Potomac Native American Flute Festival is later this month, and has enjoyable workshops, concerts, and vendor hall. It's in Arlington, VA, about 7 hours drive from Rochester. Grammy winner Bill Miller will be one of the performers.

We haven't yet visited the SunWatch Flute and Art Gathering, in Dayton, OH, but it is largely a NAF music venue, with vendors. It's about 8 hours drive from Rochester.

Not specifically NAF, our regional Native American Dance & Music Festival at Ganondagan in Victor, NY is an all around wonderful event.

The Native American Dance & Music Festival is Ganondagan's annual summer event that features a wide range of Native American traditional dancers, musicians, storytellers, and artists sharing their cultural heritage, crafts and arts with festival goers.

This event also features the ever popular children and adult workshops such as cornhusk doll making, native foods such as fry-bread, interpreted programs in the Visitor's Center and Bark Longhouse, guided trail walks, and the family drum jam.

Ganondagan's Native American Dance & Music Festival is the only event of its kind in Western New York and over 4,000 people attend each year from 37 countries and 20 states.
