Family Reunion Festival
The Citizen Potawatomi Nation Family Reunion Festival is an annual celebration of native culture for the Citizen Potawatomi people. The Festival takes place during the last Saturday of June for tribal members and their guests.
Tribal elections are held during the Festival and voting occurs on Saturday from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the tribal courtroom (in the Citizen Potawatomi administration building). The annual General Council meeting is also held on Saturday at 3 p.m.
Festival activities include Grand Entry, cultural and language classes, powwow, General Council, dance contests, sports and much more. Over the course of three days, tribal members learn, play, eat, tour, observe and engage with Potawatomi culture.
Each year, the Nation chooses several of its founding families to be honored at Festival. Honored families are celebrated with special dances on Saturday evening. Family Reunion Festival connects CPN members with their heritage, while making new friends and catching up with family members.
