26th Annual Abegweit Pow Wow

Panmure Island Cultural Park


Saturday, August 18, 2018, 01:00pm

Throughout the year, Native Council of Prince Edward Island (NCPEI) hosts many events and activities for their members and the general public as a means of promoting and preserving Aboriginal Culture and Heritage. One of the main events each year is the Annual Abegweit Pow Wow at the Panmure Island Cultural Grounds. This year, the pow wow will be August 18 and 19 at 1 pm.

A Pow wow is a rejoicing of life through feasting and dancing to the "Heart Beat of Mother Earth," represented in the Sacred Drum. The pow wow will end on Sunday evening with a traditional Mi’kmaq Feast that is open to the public with the cost by donation. There is free on-site camping, serviced washrooms and access to one of the most beautiful beaches on Prince Edward Island. 

Panmure Island Cultural Park is located at Route 347, Panmure Island. Info: Jena Banks, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
