Festivals and Events

Chief Seattle Days
This historical celebration, held the third week of August every year, features Traditional Native Dance Performances & Competitions, Indian Salmon Dinners, Traditional Canoe Races, Indian Arts & Crafts Vendors, and a Gravesite Ceremony in honor of Chief Seattle. Tribes from throughout the Northwest and beyond will be represented. Everyone, Native and Non-Native, is welcome to join in the celebration.

The first Chief Seattle Days was held in 1911 in downtown Suquamish and continues to be held on the original Celebration Grounds overlooking Port Madison, Agate Passage and the City of Seattle, the namesake of Chief Seattle. The celebration honors Chief Seattle, the famous Suquamish chief who signed the Treaty of Point Elliott in 1855 that established the Port Madison Indian Reservation and delivered the famous speech used to support the cultural and spiritual values of indigenous people throughout the world.
