Jeff's 2011 Powwow Calendar

Please call or e-mail the contact person listed below to verify that the dates shown below are accurate before you travel any long distance.  For the most part, I rely on information provided by other parties when I assemble these calendars every year, and the information provided here is only as accurate as those other sources are.  Also, any late changes may not be reflected below.  If you discover information that needs to be updated, please contact me.

I do not plan to go to all of these events.  I only provide this information because people keep asking me for updates on when and where powwows take place in our area.  This schedule is primarily for Eastern Pennsylvania with a few in other areas strewn in.
