Hampton to host powwows

 

 

The Hampton Powwow will be returning to the home of DJ and Deb Joaquim, with more vendors and attractions in its second year.

 


“We are hoping to have around 2,000-3,000 people coming through this year,” said Deb Joaquim. “It is going to be a great time and we have expanded a lot from last year.”

 

The couple started the Hampton Powwow, which will be held on Friday, Aug. 6, through Sunday, Aug. 9, will again be held on their land located on Golf Course Road in Hampton. They offer free camping to those who are attending from farther away or want to enjoy the entire weekend on site.

 

“We will have free camping again this year,” said Deb Joaquim.

 

Events will start on Friday evening with the band Shiloh, which will start playing at 9 p.m.

 

“Each day will end basically when everyone gets sick of it and goes home,” joked Deb Joaquim in saying that events will run throughout the day until crowds determine when the day is through.

 

Grand entrances will happen on Saturday and Sunday at noon, and will feature a petting zoo for children and a number of vendors.

 

“We have 26 vendors that we know are coming right now, if not more,” she said.

 

Black Horse Phillips will be on hand as the medicine man, and the drums will be provided by White Buffalo Drums. There will also be dancing and music from DJ Mae Kelly and Peggy Germain.

 

“Mae will be going on Saturday at 8 p.m. until we get through,” said Germain. “We will also be having the buffalo steaks and a variety of combos for meals on both days of the event.”
