The Crow Fair Powwow, Rodeo and Race Meet is the largest Northern Plains Indian celebration in Montana, and one of the biggest powwows in the country. Held each Summer in Crow Agency, Montana by The Apsáalooke people of the Crow Indian Reservation just South of Hardin, Montana. Also known as the "Tipi Capital of the world", Crow Fair always begins on the third Thursday in August and attracts more than 45,000 spectators and participants from the four corners of the world.

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.
