Crow Fair consists of a village of 1000 white tipis spread along the banks of the Little Bighorn River. Children race their ponies through the grass and water them in the river. A Colorful and regal morning parade winds its way through the campgrounds daily. Then an All Indian Rodeo is held each afternoon at the nearby racetrack arena. While the evenings are reserved for the Powwow dance contests, which go well into the early morning hours.
Crow Fair is held each August for the reunion of family clans, and the celebration of their culture. Though it is not intended for tourist consumption, they are welcome to attend.
The Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument, on the Crow Reservation, commemorates the site of the Indian victory over Custer's Seventh Calvary. It's only a short distance from the campgrounds to the battle site, and worth a visit.
