Annual Navajo Rug Show and Sale

Weavers Group Photo 2013

Each November the Adopt-A-Native-Elder Program sponsors a rug show and sale in Park City. At this event, we present the Elders' traditional weavings. During the show, there are a variety of programs centered around traditional Navajo culture. These include weaving demonstrations, dances, special entertainment, and a fund-raising auction. All proceeds from the sale of rugs woven by the Elders in the Program go directly to the weavers.

From its humble beginnings 25 years ago, with just a few rugs at the Kimball Arts Center, the Annual Rug Show and Sale has evolved into what may be the largest event of its kind in the country.

The Rug Show helps Adopt-A-Native-Elder create a market for the Elders’ crafts and raise awareness about the Elders’ needs. The Elders bring rugs, jewelry, and baskets to sell. They return home with all the proceeds from their sales. The money enables them to buy food, firewood, and hay during the winter.

HONORING OUR WEAVERS

Last year's show honored the 25th anniversary of our annual rug show. It was dedicated to the weavers who have made the event such a success over the years. We were pleased that sales and attendance were at record levels for this special occasion.
