Peruvian Festival and NACIP Pow Wow

NACIP Pow wow
The 22nd Annual NACIP Powwow is described as "Salt Lake City's Hottest Intertribal Contest Powwow." In fact, the Native American Celebration in the Park has to be hot after all those years of colorful whooping, foot-stomping performances. You'll hear the drum beat of the Iron Horse Singers—Cree from Washington State and Canada. There will be food booths, arts and crafts and of course, drum groups. This is a great way to spend the Pioneer Day weekend—remembering who were really the first on this American soil. Liberty Park, 600 E. 1100 South, 801-688-9297, First Session Grand Entry, Monday, July 25, noon; Second Session Grand Entry (dancers and drum groups roll-call), 5 p.m.; fireworks, 10 p.m., see website for pricing:

March For Bernie
They're affectionately called Bernie-bots because of their robotic-like loyalty to the not-so-presumptive presidential candidate. Pioneer Day marks another of the national March for Bernie events, featuring determined feet in protest to what they call (via their Facebook event page) "the highly biased and unfair treatment demonstrated by the DNC towards presidential candidate Bernie Sanders ... We are America and WE WILL NOT STAND FOR THIS!" So there. The march is meant to put pressure on the superdelegates to ultimately put Bernie on the Democratic ticket as the nominee. Oh, and if they don't, those protesters will march right out of the Democratic Party. It's a revolution, baby. Start at West High School, 241 300 North Panther Way; end at Liberty Park, 600 E. 900 South, Sunday, July 24, 9:30 a.m.-1 p.m., free,

Peruvian Festival
It's billed as the biggest and most unique Peruvian celebration in Utah. The sixth Mega Peruvian Festival Downtown promises two days of multicultural Peruvian food, traditional folklore and dances from the Peruvian jungle. There will be live music with international and local artists, Guinea Pig games, water games, Peruvian arts and handcrafts exhibitions and much more. Bring your portable chairs, blankets and tents. Gateway Plaza, 159 S. Rio Grande St., 801-834-1853, Friday-Saturday, July 22-23, free admission,
