FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. - More than 60 award-winning artists will travel from across the Navajo Nation for a weekend of cultural immersion at the Museum of Northern Arizona's 65th Annual Navajo Festival of Arts & Culture, Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 2 and 3. The Museum is located at 3101 N. Fort Valley Road in Flagstaff.

Ticket prices are $10 for adults, $9 for seniors (65+), $7 for students (with ID), $6 for American Indians (10+) and $6 for youth (10-17). The event is supported in part by the Arizona Commission on the Arts with funding from the state of Arizona and the National Endowment on the Arts as well as the Flagstaff Arts Council with city of Flagstaff/BBB revenues.

"Reaching the 65-year mark for the Navajo Festival of Arts & Culture is an incredible milestone on many levels," said Museum of Northern Arizona President and CEO Dr. Robert Breunig. "The festival is a place where culture, creativity and community happen and reflects the long-standing and mutually beneficial relationship between the museum and the Navajo people."

The public will have the opportunity to purchase traditional and contemporary examples of silverwork, jewelry, painting, weaving, folk carving, sculpture and more directly from the artists.

Artist demonstrations, including weaving and sand painting, traditional foods, musical performances and the pageantry of Navajo social dances are also planned.

The Museum of Northern Arizona is located three miles from historic downtown Flagstaff on scenic Highway 180 leading to the Grand Canyon.
