SACRED Arts Festival, presented by Running Strong for American Indian Youth®, is a two-day event in the heart of Sacramento that will celebrate Native art, culture, and community. Immerse yourself in live mural painting. Join us for indigenous film screenings and live musical performances. Explore vendor booths showcasing crafts, jewelry, and art. Discover local Sacramento food and beverage. We are creating a platform to honor and represent Native artists and communities, while sharing the richness of Native culture and contemporary art with the wider public.

Running Strong for American Indian Youth was co-founded in 1986 by Billy Mills (Oglala Lakota) who dreamt of uplifting Native Communities. Running Strong now reaches dozens of tribal communities in more than 30 states with focus areas including clean water access, critical needs, food sovereignty and security, cultural preservation, youth programming, and the arts.
We are excited to continue expanding our mission, and our footprint by presenting the first ever SACRED Arts Festival in Sacramento this Spring.
