The extraordinarily rainy spring and early summer seasons have made parking on non-paved areas not practical or safe for the 2nd Great Miami First Peoples Celebration to occur at Governor Bebb MetroPark. But the show must go on!

To eliminate the chance of cars stuck in saturated parking areas and/or unpleasant walking conditions, this event scheduled to take place this coming Saturday, June 29th from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. will be moved to Rentschler Forest MetroPark, in Fairfield Township. Gather your family and come on over to take advantage of this fantastic experience.


Butler County is rich with cultural history! Come experience first-hand the vibrant culture of Native Americans while embracing the opportunity to honor their traditions. Activities will include a drum circle, dancers dressed in regalia, and intertribal traditional/contemporary dance & song demonstrations! Food, beverages, and Native American vendors will also be available to delight guests outside of the dance ring.

Due to the nature of the event, please leave all furry friends at home.
