About Us

The Sarasota Native American Indian Festival was founded by (the late) Rex A. Begaye in 2008. As a traditional Din'eh(navajo) artist, it was his vision to bring authentic Native American culture to the Sarasota area to share the artistry, dance, music and food of many Native American tribes with the Sarasota community.

In 2013 our Beloved Rex walked on and throught this event we continue to uphold and share Rex's vision, passion and legacy for future generations.

Come join us and celebrate the culture, artistry, music, food and traditions of the Native American people....January 18, 19, 20, 2019 at the Sarasota Fairgrounds, 3000 Ringling Blvd.(back field).
