23rd Annual American Indian Heritage Celebration

Saturday, November 17, 2018, 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Musicians, dancers, artists, storytellers, and authors from North Carolina’s eight state-recognized tribes will gather for this popular family event. Named a Top 20 Event by the Southeast Tourism Society, the 23rd Annual American Indian Heritage Celebration offers something for all ages and gives a firsthand opportunity to learn about the state’s American Indian culture (with a population of over 120,000), past and present. Activities include craft demonstrations, hands-on activities, games, foods, and much more.

From November 17-24, the North Carolina Museum of History will be accepting canned goods on behalf of a partnership with Inter-Faith Food Shuttle and their BackPack Buddies campaign. BackPack Buddies is designed to provide children from low-income households with six balanced meals and two snacks for the weekend when free school lunches and breakfasts are not provided. The Food Shuttle works with individual schools in their seven service counties to distribute 2,700 BackPack Buddies a week. School principals and social workers identify students to receive BackPack Buddies.
From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., attendees of the 23rd Annual American Indian Heritage Celebration will have the opportunity to donate canned goods towards this campaign. Volunteers from Inter-Faith Food Shuttle will have a tent and bins on Bicentennial Plaza, near Edenton Street, where donations will be collected. To show thanks for your donation, the North Carolina Symphony will provide donors with a coupon for $20 to be used towards a pair of regular priced tickets for a concert of your choice in January 2019. Excludes Young People’s Concerts and discounted ticket prices. To redeem, please bring to the NCS Box Office at 3700 Glenwood Avenue, Suite 130, Raleigh, NC 27612 during office hours Mon-Fri, 9am-5pm.
