In its second consecutive year back since the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the Haskell Indian Art Market will feature a wide variety of products made by local Native American creators.
Hosted by Haskell Indian Nations University, the annual event brings the Lawrence community together to promote and support Native American creators. During the market, vendors will be selling their jewelry, pottery, carvings, paintings, clothing and other handmade pieces as well as food such as frybread and Indian tacos.
Vendors during the two-day event will be set up underneath tents, where attendees will be able to browse and shop. Live cultural performances will take place throughout each day.
The Haskell Indian Art Market is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 9 and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 10.
Live entertainment will begin at noon, 2 and 4 p.m. both days. Admission and parking are free of cost.
The event will be held at the Haskell Pow Wow grounds, 2535 West Perimeter Road, located off of 23rd and Massachusetts streets in Lawrence.
Road construction on 23rd Street in Lawrence is still underway, so there may be delays for folks driving in from the east.
No pets — with the exception of service animals — are allowed, according to the event flyer. Those planning on attending should note that the market is held outdoors in a grassy area, and wheelchairs or strollers may be difficult to maneuver. Cash payment for purchases is preferred, and there will be an ATM on-site.
