Gates open at 10am and Grand Entry is scheduled at noon both days (rain or shine). Veterans and those in active service are honored during opening ceremonies during a Veterans’ dance. Family members are invited to join in this dance honoring their loved ones. On Saturday, a special dance will feature past EDN Princess; Sunday bring your father into the Dance Circle for the Father’s Day Dance. Haudenosaunee social dancing will be featured both days. Barry & Barbara of the folk band Spirit Wing, a several-time Native American Music Awards Finalist, will perform on Saturday evening.
