The 70th annual Choctaw Indian Fair takes place July 10-13.
The fair takes place on the centuries-old homeland in beautiful Choctaw, Mississippi.
The Choctaws gather each July to celebrate their heritage and share their beautiful and vibrant culture with friends and neighbors.
Fairgoers will experience the magnificent journey of the Choctaw people through historical and cultural displays, social dancing, tribal arts & crafts, Choctaw stickball – “the granddaddy of all field sports” – as well as the Choctaw Indian Princess Pageant and traditional Choctaw food.
The fair also offers carnival rides and games for the young and old alike, Shawi’s Discovery Zone and chart-topping musical acts each night.
There’s something for everyone at the Choctaw Indian Fair.
Gates opened on July 10 at 11 a.m. Opening ceremonies begin at 6 p.m followed by the 2019 Choctaw Indian Princess Pageant.
This year’s winner will be crowned by the 2018-2019 Choctaw Indian Princess Sydni Jade Tangle.
In addition to crowning the new princess during pageant night, other awards will be handed out including Miss Congeniality, Miss Photogenic, Media Competition Award, as well as First and Second Alternate.
