Held VIRTUALLY 2020!
The Denver American Indian Festival will celebrate its 7th year virtually in September. This is a FREE, family friendly, fun festival where all are welcome.
The purpose of the Festival is to let all people experience and learn about the American Indian culture through song, dance, arts, crafts, food and fun. We can still share the spirit of the festival online, we are anticipating to return and we hope to be at our new venue, the Adams County Fairgrounds! Stay tuned for updates as we finalize the 2021 festival.
The Kids Zone which is one of the popular events of the festival for the kids will have a virtual section with cultural art that can be completed at home by the kids with just a few home items..
We will still have vendors and will have links to their websites so you can purchase and support our vendors.
Hungry? We will have a few American Indian recipes that you can prepare and enjoy at home. Sadly, we haven't developed a scratch and sniff website to share our yummy tacos.
Please join us in our virtual festival, this is a FREE family fun event!
We hope to see you ONLINE in September and we are always in need of volunteers and/or sponsors for this event. It is great fun! Here is a positive way to give back to the community. Please send questions to Fest15Chief@comcast.net.

2020 Festival Entertainment Schedule
Computers for Kids
The Denver American Indian Festival has formed a partnership with the Westminster Rotary to get underprivileged children computers. The program "Computers for Kids" is underway and DAIF has been able to start the program this month by giving away 3 computers to 3 students in Adams County. Our goal is to give away 500 computers this year statewide. Statistics tell us that only 40% of American Indian students graduate each year due to lack of basic tools, resources, and support to succeed. WE NEED YOUR HELP. We need all the old computer systems that you are no longer using. The systems will be refurbished by Rotary and will be made available to DAIF. We need both lap top and desk top units.
"all donated computers will be wiped and formatted prior to being refurbished and distributed."
We need your help! If you know students who are in need, please contact us (do not need to be American Indian students.) Education of our children is the most worthwhile project that we can support. Please contact Fest15Chief@comcast.net
for more information or to donate computers.
