39th Annual Big Time Festival

39th Annual Big Time Festival at Point Reyes National Sea Shore – Kule Loklo, Bear Valley

Please join us for a new chapter of Big Time, a gathering that evokes the past while exploring the present and future of the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria and Native California.

Walk through Kule Loklo with an appetite for listening, talking, learning, and storytelling with demonstrators, allies, park staff, volunteers, and tribal members. Traditional dancers may attend to share dances.

Learn more about the Coast Miwok and other local American Indians now and going forward at a variety of informational booths. Join park staff and volunteers in programs throughout the day to discuss questions of place, land, and belonging.

This event is great for the whole family and is free of charge. Bring a picnic lunch and spend the day.
