The Ocmulgee Indigenous Celebration (previously called the Ocmulgee Indian Celebration) will take place from Saturday, September 17th through Sunday, September 18th from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. 

The Ocmulgee Indigenous Celebration features many "Native American performers and interpreters, [including] Muscogee Creek Nation citizens...dances, stories, music, crafts, and food" according to the organizers. This will be the first year since the pandemic began that there the festivities won't be limited or only offered virtually.
