In celebration of Southeastern Native American cultures, Ocmulgee Mounds National Historical Park will host its 30th Ocmulgee Indigenous Celebration the 3rd weekend in September. The Celebration is a homecoming to the Muscogee people who consider the park their ancestral homeland. Named one of the Top 20 Events in the Southeast by the Southeast Tourism Society, the Celebration shares this vital piece of American history with visitors, allowing them to understand the Native American heritage, arts, and cultures first-hand through interaction and observation. The event aims to bring together many Native American communities with traditional and contemporary elements that highlight and celebrate the beauty and important contributions of the Native Peoples to Georgia and the Southeast. Rediscover the mounds and Earth Lodge, Visitor Center, trails and nature within the park. Parking will be down the road at the Macon-Bibb Health Department 171 Emery Hwy. A free, handicap-accessible shuttle will take you right to the event gate.
