Mohegan Wigwam Festival This Weekend

Feather News

The Mohegan Tribe will hold its wigwam powwow event this weekend - on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. at Fort Shantok in Uncasville, CT. Admission is free to the public and grand entry is at noon on both days.

This year, the Mohegan Veterans will have an information booth for all veterans and their families to discuss veteran benefits and to collect and archive oral stories from veterans as part of Project Storykeeper. Veterans can stop by the booth or contact Bill Donehey at wdonehey@yahoo.com or (860) 861-6137.

To attend the wigwam festival, the public is asked to park at the Mohegan Sun Casino and take a bus from the casino's bus lobby or the Thamesview garage to Fort Shantok.
