Eel Ground Powwow

The Eel Ground First Nation Annual Powwow is held on the third weekend of July each year. It is located at the Powwow grounds on Riverview Road East overlooking the Miramichi River. This is our community’s cultural, spiritual and social event of the year. It is our time to showcase the drumming, dancing and regalia of the First Nation people. It is a perfect opportunity to experience First Nation Culture.
